I am a freelance educational writer with 20+ years of expertise developing educational content, primarily K-2 science and social studies. It is by far my favorite gig. I have been fortunate to work dozens of programs for major publishers including Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Macmillan, McGraw-Hill, Mtelegence Corporation, and TCI. My most recent project for TCI’s Bring Science Alive! included creating phenomena-based lesson content, videos, and teacher support designed for NGSS.
Additionally, I am the Director of Strategic Communications for InternBoston, a Boston-metro internship placement firm. I have created student resources such as Preparing for Your Internship Interview, Professional Attire for Interns, Creating an Elevator Pitch, and ebook How to Make Your Resume Pop – Tips for Writing High School and College Resumes.
I also manage the Oral History Project at Massasoit Community College. You can see my work on the Massasoit Oral History Project website, which I designed.
I write YA, middle grade, and picture book manuscripts and hope to be published in the trade marketplace. I have a B.A. in English (with a writing concentration) from Michigan State University. I find tremendous support from the writing community (in person and online). I am a member of SCBWI and /NESCBWI.
I live in Massachusetts with my high-school sweetheart husband, daughter, and two cats Rocco and Boo.
