I love to write. I am a natural ‘in my head’ kind of a girl, and from the time I was a child, I was often narrating my way through life. I dreamed of someday writing a book, but to me that someday was mostly a fantasy, with very little reality attached. As I have journeyed through my life and my career, gaining valuable (and sometimes unusual, comical, or painful) experience along the way, I became more comfortable with the idea that I had something unique to say.
In 2016 I went through a period of intense personal and professional growth, which allowed me the opportunity to examine every facet of my life, and realize that despite the achievements, something was missing. I was feeling a bit disconnected from my passion, and work was feeling too sterile and less meaningful. I soul-searched my way through it and reconnected with both myself and my passion, and what resulted after this period of self-inventory was my first nonfiction book, Conscious Conservation.
Now that my first book is out of the way, I have a slew of additional book ideas to work on! I will write more non-fiction related to my professional experience no doubt, but I foresee a novel in the near future as well. I’ll also be writing blog posts a few times a month to satisfy my desire to write whatever suits my fancy, no editor required.
Thanks for joining my journey. Here’s to the written word!
