​​Writer

I'm currently working on a substantial creative writing project while raising our toddler. In addition to holding a Ph.D. in psychology, I'm a very tall (6'0"), die-hard Cubs fan with an even taller (6'9") husband.


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.
