about me

I'm a 38-year-old author from Buffalo, NY. Until September 2022, I lived in Bremerhaven, Germany for 11 years and worked as a teacher and Zumba Fitness instructor.


I write for Huffington Post, Insider, Elephant Journal, Buffalo Rising and Buffalo Spree. I am the recipient of first place award for creative non-fiction in the Olive Woolley Burt Award given by League of Utah Writers and two-time finalist in the Women on Writing Creative Non-Fiction Writing Contest.  

In my spare time, I am at the gym, reading everything I can, gardening or attending poetry open mics around town.

Drop me a line if you want to know more about me or my work! Always happy to communicate with readers.

my writing

I write humor, dramedy, fiction, articles, editorials and creative non-fiction.

Current projects:


A bilingual screenplay of a series Ex-Pats about four English-speaking women living in Germany. It outlines the linguistic and interpersonal struggles of life in a foreign country.

A modern-day re-write of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice entitled Merchant of Texas, co-authored by Michael Kopalek. 

A memoir of the eleven years I spent in Bremerhaven, Germany as a foreign language and Zumba teacher.

A screenplay based on my experiences since returning to the USA.

A fictional romance novel (but not sappy, I promise!)

A brand new play about women's and men's health.
