After a childhood spent exploring the diverse climates of the American Southwest and developing a love for beaches, mountains, and deserts alike, I joined the United States Army as a water purification specialist. This adventure took me to South Korea, where I enjoyed the local culture and met my future husband. I returned to the United States with a strong appreciation of clean water and a dream to pursue my love of writing.

I soon started blogging and working toward a degree in English. It wasn’t long before I was writing devotions for my church (and a few other websites and publications), so I decided to take the plunge and become a full-time freelance writer. I currently write for an adventure travel company and numerous web clients around the United States.

The beautiful Mojave desert of Las Vegas is where I make my home, along with my husband and three children. When I’m not writing, you can find me teaching nature journaling to educational groups, enthusiastically tackling my Good Reads book list, or working toward my goal of exploring the hidden wonders in every U.S. National Park.
