As a freelance writer I’ve covered an extensive range of topics, including homeowners’ issues, car safety, family-focused themes, profiles, reviews, and travel.

I have also completed two life story projects in which I interviewed my subjects and wrote their memoirs. With a Master’s degree in Social Work, I have specialized training as an interviewer. I have interviewed hundreds of subjects; I am skilled in comfortable interview pacing and asking in-depth questions at the right time.
