About Me

 

 

Redeemed woman in a broken world. That’s the phrase that describes my life, beliefs, and writing goals.

Originally a small-town Pennsylvania girl, I studied communications/writing at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and worked at a local paper in PA before moving to Nashville. I’m a communications professional currently working at a large healthcare organization based in Nashville. My professional experience includes writing training materials, creating web-based courses, drafting communication plans and messages, editing of all kinds, and writing articles for a large department newsletter. I’m currently working on a master’s in communication from Southern New Hampshire University.

In my personal life, I write as a poet pondering both internal perspectives and external events through the lens of faith in Jesus Christ, always looking for the path to redemption. That’s where the white chrysanthemum in my logo comes in—it represents truth. For me, it is as central and precious as implied in this haiku by Japanese poet Chora:

 

white chrysanthemums

making all else about them

reflected riches

 

I write poems, articles, blogs, and books. All but the latter are published in different places on the Web, and you can find links to them throughout my website. For many years, I wrote about my experiences as a single Christian woman continually seeking for truth in the midst of that long-term and unanticipated circumstance. That’s what my project Not Meant to Be is all about. In 2013 God answered my prayers for a husband, who is a gift beyond what I could ask or imagine.
