Psychology & Philosophy

I'm a child of God, a wife, and a mother. I strive each day to help others. And I write.

In the past, I've written about faith, wellness, and caregiving. Magazines such as Fifty Plus and Families of Loved Ones have published my work. I've written online courses for long-term care professionals and published over a dozen academic journal articles and book chapters related to counseling and aging.

In 2013, my "Caregiver's Credo" was selected as best senior caregiving article by Assisted Living Today.

Currently, I write creative works such as personal essays and screenplays that shine a light on difficult subjects. In 2020, I won the competition for Best Feature Script at the Lake Travis Film Festival (Bee Cave, TX) for my screenplay, "The Twisted Apple Sweetness Patrol." I am also interested in writing for faith-based organizations and non-profit agencies that work to make the world a better place.
