IMG_6878The Shared Journey

Welcome! I am a writer and editor specializing in topics pertaining to mental health, wellness, fitness and parenthood, as well as a wife and mama to a set of twin girls and their singleton big sister. (Yes, it’s pure chaos!)

I work as a writer and editor at Lucie’s List (an amazing resource for expectant and new parents), and my writing has also appeared in a variety of publications, including Psychology Today, Huffington Post Parents and Twiniversity.com, to name a few. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Indiana University, as well as a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary’s University in Minnesota.

Writing–and connecting with others through the written word–is truly my life-force; it is how I attribute meaning to and make sense of the world. We all have a narrative, and I am passionate about sharing mine in an effort to bridge the gaps between people, expose our similarities, and increase acceptance of one another. I call this “the shared journey”.

This notion of “the shared journey” has always been the inspiration behind the topics I choose to write about, both personally (blog) and professionally. Through my words, I aim to illustrate that despite any differences we may have, we’re all in this life together.

I would be ever so grateful if you would join me on this collaborative adventure by reading my work and sharing any of your own thoughts and stories with me. Ready? Let’s go!
