Since you asked...
I've been a freelance writer and editor for the past 20 years. I've pursued a dual-track career, composing consumer articles and books on health, nutrition, fitness, psychology, craft, pet, entertainment and lifestyle topics, as well as continuing education materials for health professionals for print, Web, audio and video formats.
My work has been published in consumer magazines and newsletters such as Bottom Line/Personal, First for Women, Fitness, Glamour, McCall’s, New Woman, Reader's Digest, Redbook, Shape and Woman’s Day, and on the Worldwide Web. Recently, an article I wrote for Shape magazine on cervical cancer and human papilloma virus won a 2004 Silver National Health Information Award from the Health Information Resource Center.
I've written two books: The Smart Guide to Boosting Your Energy, published by John Wiley and Sons in 1999, and Craft to Heal, which is soon to be published.
I'm a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, as well as the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists and the Screen Actors Guild (I used to be an actress!). I've received media training and have appeared on several television programs and performed satellite tours in support of my articles and as a spokesperson.
I graduated magna cum laude from Boston University with a major in communication and a minor in psychology. Since then, I've taken numerous continuing education courses in graphic design, web design, and entertainment writing.
