Hello! Thank you for visiting my professional page. In my role as a communications specialist for the U.S. Army, I write people profiles, technical articles and social media content for the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center.

For almost a decade, I have been fortunate to write about a range of topics and high-profile people for the Army. However, my favorite stories are about unsung heroes -- the good people doing great work to make the world a better place. Shining a spotlight on them and giving them the recognition they deserve motivates me as a writer. 

In addition, I enjoy mentoring local school writing and newspaper groups, from elementary to high school level. 

From 2009 to 2016, I wrote a personal lifestyle blog. Although more of a hobby than a job, the experience was immensely valuable as it enabled me to develop my voice, hone my skills and connect with an audience. 

This website is home to memorable assignments, special stories and one large, orange cat named Sgt. Balls.
