About Me

After 15 years as a hairdresser, educator, and public speaker, I now find myself a student once again; I currently attend Metropolitan State University as a professional writing major. I'm also a salon/marketing director for the awesomest salon in the Twin Cities, editor of The Metropolitan newspaper newspaper, and a freelance writer for newspapers, magazines and local businesses. Over summer 2009, I was also the Minneapolis Wellness Examiner on examiner.com.

I have been an editorial intern at Minnesota Monthly magazine magazine for summer 2010 and am currently the social media/web intern at Experience Life magazine magazine.

I have loved writing and since I was a kid. My goal is to connect with others through my writing. As a hairdresser, I encountered so many different people and was exposed to so many interesting viewpoints; I'd like to think that I have a few unique ideas of my own, but decide for yourself.

I'm a Minnesota native and haveve lived in Minneapolis for the past 20+ years. I'm a voracious reader, I'm always in the middle of some personal development project, I travel the world whenever I can afford it, I've been known to drool over the latest technology, and I have a slightly unnatural emotional attachment to my beagle, Plato.

Know me now?
