Mom. Communicator. Explorer. Living the simple but authentic life in northwest Wisconsin.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved listening, learning and sharing stories.
I started my professional life in television journalism as a producer and later managing editor. During this time, I won a number of awards including one from the Associated Press for writing on a piece I did about my photo hero Jim Brandenburg.
In 2005, I left television news to find a more balanced life. I found it in the heart of Bayfield County on Moon Lake. It is here I married a forester, became a mom, and, discovered my passion for roasting coffee, gardening and running. It also became home to my freelance marketing and writing business.
Today, I split my time working as a senior marketing and communications specialist at Memorial Medical Center in Ashland and growing my personal business. I work with a variety of clients within the tourism, travel, arts, healthcare and nonprofit world. I also love discovering and sharing stories about regional entrepreneurs and businesses in a variety of regional newspapers, magazines and trade publications.
I’m a board member for the Bayfield County Economic Development Corporation and Vice-Chair on the board of directors for NorthLakes Community Clinic.
Life on Moon Lake isn’t perfect; but it sure is filled with adventures. I hope you enjoy reading about some of my adventures. And, should you ever find yourself needing someone to share your stories, drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you!
