From 2001-2011, I worked as a journalist briefly in Boston and mostly in Spokane, Wash. Like most newspaper reporters, I covered a bit of everything—healthcare, local government, business, elections, breaking news, etc. Especially on Sundays. When my daughters were young, I freelanced, which put me on a more features path (food, family, home decor, crafts).

I also was editor of a local home-and-lifestyle magazine in Spokane. Being the editor of a local magazine means you are all the jobs, including photographer and writer and snoop inside really cool homeser.

Here are some of my published clips.
