ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I started my career after attending SUNY Oswego and fulfilling a dream of moving to New York City. Working at Hachette Filipacchi Media U.S. and Condé Nast introduced me to the world of publishing. Upon moving back to my hometown of Buffalo, NY I found my place at The Buffalo News and met my husband who was serving in the United States Air Force. My background in marketing, photography, sales and writing broadened as I lived, worked and traveled overseas. I authored and managed The Stars and Stripes European special publications in Kaiserslautern, Germany and eventually went on to pursue a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. Currently, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia and Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida. I have a private practice offering Teletherapy. My passion projects include creating stories and books.
As an author, my past experiences in the media prove useful with developing stories, collaborating with illustrators and publishing. Working with children, I incorporate my love of books whenever it’s fitting. Often pairing it with a creative outlet. This usually involves making art, crafting, writing, or anything that resonates with them in order to identify, label and express their thoughts and feelings.
