About Me

It's possible to chase your passion of writing for a living while taking care of your family and yourself.

I know, because it wasn't that long ago that I was working overnights at a hospital, pregnant with my second, incredibly sleep deprived while caring for my toddler during the day, wishing something would give.

I wanted to be home with my daughter and the new baby on the way. I wanted to do work I really cared about, work that made a difference in some way and I wanted to be a part of paying of my family's debt so we could live more freely.

When I first started freelancing in early 2015, all I wanted was to make a $1000 a month. I knew things would be tight, but I also knew that was just enough money to allow me to quit my job at the hospital and stay home with my children full-time.

Since the day I handed in my notice at my job, I have done a lot of things imperfectly, I have made a lot of mistakes but I have also experienced a lot success. My family is no longer struggling to make ends meet, we are slowly paying off our debt and we are spending more time together.

I started this website not because I'm an amazing writer or making a ton of money each month, but because I believe that mothers who want to write should have the resources they need to get started. Finding new clients, learning to pitch and knowing how much to charge shouldn't be a secret. I also believe it is possible to be a good writer and a good mom at the same time and I hope to share some the things I have learned that have made my life as a work-at-home mom less chaotic and more fun. 

I'm so excited to get to know you and the dreams you have for your writing and your family. Leave me a comment or send me an email. Lets talk about the next step in your story.
