She owned a successful home décor business for ten years before switching to adjusting catastrophe insurance claims and climbing roofs for a living. Now she writes. Her award-winning work has appeared in print and online magazines. She irregularly writes a blog about her daughter with special needs, travel, and other life adventures. Her first book, Loving Lindsey: Raising a Daughter with Special Needs was released by She Writes Press in September 2017.
