Freelance Journalist and Money Expert

I offer quality freelance writing services and professional blogging services from my home office (and sometimes from my couch).

Not only do I provide freelance writing services to a variety of clients, but I also present workshops and appear on panels. I’ve taught workshops on money management and presented on basic principles of personal finance and investing. I also participate on panels related to journalism, the changing nature of writing on the Internet, and gender issues.

I have been full-time freelance journalist and professional blogger for several years now. My specialties include personal finance, small business, entrepreneurship, beginning investing, and other finance-related topics. I write on many other subjects as well, including law, science, and technology. Sometimes I rant about politics and religion.

When not working, I spend time with my husband and son. My hobbies include travel, reading, and enjoying outdoor activities.
