Work with Me

That face to the right says it all…I am an enthusiastic, passionate, and perhaps just a bit too opinionated writer who loves a good story. Any good story. Crafting them, reading them, and editing them. My years in advertising has helped me hone the art of the “hook”, and my brevity can be a buoy on the overcrowded sea of the web.

Good stories come from places where you least expect them, and PuckGal was born out of my daughter’s desire to be a hockey goalie. With a little humor, a lot of cash (ice is expensive in Arizona!) and an even bigger love of the game Puckgal is a collection of moments with which any sports parent can relate.

My newest blog, From Midlife to Midterms chronicles life as a 40-Something college student, English major, parent, and writer. Will I decide to rush a sorority? Study abroad? With me, who knows! The goal is to make the most out of this new chapter in my journey.
