About Me

Wife for 25 years and mom of three boys (15, 12, & 9), I’m a Jesus writer and speaker with a day job that revolves around taming the stinky, scraping off the sticky, and distributing boys to the places they go.


I’m not perfect. I'm finally learning that I've lived too many days being bullied by a checklist, and am now settling into a life that embraces grace and growth. My sink full of dishes is evidence of that...


My overwhelmingly testosterone-laden family embraces a sport-filled, friend-filled, church-filled life in Cincinnati. Pre-Cincinnati, we embraced Chicago (no kids), then Boston (one kid) as home, where I loved working as a corporate communications consultant and marketing director in higher education. Since then, the fancy shoes don’t come out very often.


My favorites are cheering for my boys from soccer sidelines, settling in for family movie nite, and laughing with my friends. Loudly. With some cackling. 

You'll find me often at The Joyful Life Magazine where I'm honored to be on the Blog Contributor Team and the Devotion Writer Team. My work has also been featured at (in)courage, Fathom Mag, Revelation Wellness, and Living By Design.
