Biography

My goal is to see every woman live up to their full potential & in doing so leave the world a little better place. Your Voice can cause a ripple effect! -- It can start a "revolution in thought."

An editor of a women in technology networking blog for some years, I decided to turn my writing towards making changes for women, globally, not just in the tech sector. I write for the International Museum of Women, Life360 (a family safety blog) and Girls on IT. A PR Consultant for @FuseCorps, Social Media for @MorganBraxton Wine Society and Rolf Lygren Fine Art, and a Digital Content Strategist, I am most often found contributor as a Writer/Blogger, a supporter of @GirlUp, Girl Rising and the Miss Representation Project, I am also a child advocate, ocean advocate and an avid sailor.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Having been a writer with a passion for both non-fiction, (as well as poetry and blogging), and new forms of writing and media, it was an easy choice to go indie and choose Smashwords.
What's the story behind your latest book?
When I was living in Seattle and taking a class on "Excellence" (& how to be excellent in your own life), we were tasked with a project: Write down a list of all your complaints. I noticed, most of those items on my list had to do with my frustrations with being a woman in America and the unfair/unjust treatment we sometimes receive, as far as equality, misogynistic attitudes, and the way media so poorly portrays women and girls. We were then told to turn all of our complaints into possibilities --- this became my book project! I researched and read every new book I could that came out regarding women's issues, including books like "That Takes Ovaries" and "Kiss my Tiara." (Who knew there were so many!) And, while being an advocate for girls and education/equal rights for them, this became my mission for this book. So, I decided to pour my experiences into this, to make it a platform for young women and adults, both, to find their true "women's voice" and have a say in our communities, which could help grow them for the better.
