Welcome to my site. I write for Fort Collins Magazine and Colorado State University, and I’m the author of The Coloradoan’s Wild Mama column, sharing my trials and triumphs as I seek to keep an adventurous spirit during motherhood. My personal essays have appeared in national publications including Proto, and have been anthologized in several Travelers’ Tales “The Best Women’s Travel Writing” volumes. My most recent essay won a first place Solas Award for travel writing in the Travel and Transformation category. When I’m not out exploring solo or with my family, I can be found at home in the foothills near Fort Collins, working on my book-in-progress.
