Journalist, Sommelier, Mom

Welcome to my portfolio website and blog! Iโ€™m currently living in Sacramento, where I am a journalist, communications consultant, and most importantly, a mom. I have a Master's in Journalism from Northwestern University. I am a Certified Sommelier and worked in fine dining managing beverage programs for many years. All of which prepared me with skills I would need for the new forays of motherhood; attention to detail, rapid response time, logistics, multitasking, negotiating, and preparing meals for one tough critic.  

When Iโ€™m not writing, you'll find me reading to my son, reorganizing our wine cellar, cooking for a soiree, packing for our next trip, mountain hiking, or on the mat practicing yoga or barre. I am seeking more freelance writing opportunities.
