When I was 12, I spent hours in my room writing short stories and illustrating them with my awesome set of pink Fashion Plates. When I saw my first byline in my high school newspaper, I was hooked!
I interned at the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Style Weekly and WRLH-TV (FOX Network affiliate) while I was a student at Virginia Commonwealth University. Equipped with a B.A. in English and a German minor, my first “real” job was working for a professional sports agent. That’s when my journey in marketing and public relations began and I’ve been fully immersed in it ever since.
In 2005, I became a mom for the first time and that’s when my love of writing and my love of motherhood magically came together. My mom blog, MommyQ was born!
Navigating the wild world of motherhood as MommyQ opened doors to exciting writing opportunities for popular parenting and lifestyle-focused websites like Betty Confidential, iVillage, Babble and HSN, as well as national magazines like Parents, Parenting, Martha Stewart Living, Marie Claire and Self.
Those writing gigs opened even more doors. And more doors. Today–after lots of door opening–my clients tend to be entrepreneurial thinkers seeking that unique Gen X voice that says, “gag me with a spoon!” I mean, “totes, legit.” Okay, I have no idea what Gen X’ers say.
