Overview

I have worked as a writer and copy editor with a variety of newspapers including the Yuma Daily Sun and have done some pro bono public relations writing for the Navy's relief organization. I designed Utah State University's Business Administration Webpage. I wrote web content and drew clickable maps with Adobe for the National Scenic Byways Online.

I took a break to raise four busy boys, serve on the PTA and am ready to get back to work.
