It’s a lucky person who gets to follow their passions in life.  Being a journalist has allowed me to tell stories about a wide range of people and travel to places I never would have experienced.

After graduating with an English degree from Barnard College/Columbia University I began working in television.  I’ve worked as a producer/writer  for PBS in Chicago , CNN in Washington, D.C. and WPEC-TV in West Palm Beach.

I’ve won several professional awards, including  4 Midwest Emmys  and a Peter Lisagor Award from the Chicago chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.  In 2000, I was awarded a journalism fellowship to the University of Michigan.  My writing’s appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Parent, Daily Herald, Midwest Living magazine along with on-line travel sites including CruiseCritic.  I’m interested in combining my background in TV and writing to create new media on the web.

When I’m not enjoying my work, you’ll find me enjoying my 3 kids or reading a good book.  Thanks to my dad, for encouraging my curiosity and passing on his wanderlust! Let the journey continue!
