Copywriter, Ghostwriter, Writer

Passionate, detail oriented, creative writer and artist

It takes a lot to be a good writer. Research, creativity, technical knowledge, and attention to detail are all important. What makes a great writer is a passion for the subject matter. I am passionate about dogs, and I know how to write about them. Through my organization, Coral Dogs, I help to save the lives of dogs in North Central Florida.

Daily hands-on experience with a wide variety of dogs enables me to write content that is rich in experience and practical knowledge. My informational articles are thoroughly researched but also informed by the work I've done with dogs and the people who love them.

Before becoming a full-time writer, I was employed at the University of Florida Small Animal Hospital as a client liaison for the neurology, integrative, and zoology services. As I helped clients navigate through the hospital, sign paperwork, and make payments, I also saw the kind of stress that having a sick family member can cause, regardless of whether that family member happens to be a pet.

I learned about the carefully controlled chaos that goes on behind closed doors at an animal hospital. I was privileged to work around some of the most talented veterinarians and veterinary technicians in the industry. The degree and variety of their skills never cease to amaze me.

Before I worked at UF, I managed a small family-owned dog daycare. In the long solitary hours among the packs of dogs, I became intrigued by canine social relationships. I learned about different play styles and what kinds of personalities got along with which. Watching dogs who had previously been thought to be dog-reactive play with other dogs for the first time was one of the most deeply satisfying experiences of my life.

My high school education is from Dreyfoos School of the Arts in the Communication Arts, with a focus on creative writing. I went to Stetson University and graduated with honors. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English with a focus in Creative Writing and minors in Psychology and Philosophy.
