I'm a freelance journalist living in South Florida. Before going into journalism, I spent close to 10 years as a medical office administrator.
My work has appeared in top-50 daily newspapers and on national news websites. My awards include a national prize from the Society of Professional Journalists' Mark of Excellence Awards.
I studied language and literature at Florida Atlantic University, where I earned my bachelor's and ran the student newspaper.
