I’m currently a writer for www.twiniversity.com and Multiplicity Magazine. Prior to that, I wrote for the NASPA Women in Student Affairs Blog. The following is my published work sorted into my three strongest areas of writing: my own story, helpful tips and advice, and interview pieces.
My professional goal is to be a monthly columnist or contributing writer for a national women’s or parenting magazine and/or local newspaper.

Bonus Interview Piece: This piece I wrote for my own blog. It has not been published anywhere else but it did bring in the most visitors to my blog. I interviewed seven local stay-at-home parents about the field of stay-at-home parenting. I intentionally wrote the piece for Labor Day weekend reading as a way to highlight the hard work and passion behind stay-at-home parenting that sometimes we forget because it is not financially compensated.
