For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to write. When I was in college, I started out majoring in business. My dad asked if I liked my classes, and I said no. “What do you like?” he asked. “Journalism,” I told him without the slightest pause. Then, he gave me the best advice I’ve ever received in my life. “You should study what you like, or you’ll never be happy.” I switched my major immediately, and college became one of the greatest joys of my life.
I graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism, and from The Johns Hopkins University with a Master of Arts in Writing. My communications interests led me to Washington, D.C. where I worked on Capitol Hill as a press secretary in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, a public affairs liaison in the U.S. Department of Education, and communications director for a U.S. Presidential Inauguration. I took a professional break to raise my two daughters, and then took an assignment as a public affairs director for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Through it all, I never stopped writing. I was happy and surprised to be named an Amazon-best-selling women’s memoir and writing skills author for an essay I wrote on – of all things – cheerleading envy. Writing still brings me great joy.
