My genre of interest is creative nonfiction, and I work as a freelance writer based in Bozeman, Montana, specializing in pet-related topics (primarily dogs). After working as a veterinary technician and behaviorist for close to three decades as well as dabbling in agility, shelter and rescue work, obedience, and tracking along the way, I began sharing my passion for dogs with others through my writings. Those continued efforts blossomed into being a contributing writer for two publications, Coastal Canine and Bozeman Magazine.
I am currently a senior, attending Indiana University East’s online degree program for Technical and Professional Writing. During my studies, I have been exposed to graphic design which I enjoy as an addition to my writing. I have been able to put the skills I learned during my studies towards practical applications; the graphic design work has enabled me to do the marketing for my husband’s and my pet photography business.
The “selected writings” section of my portfolio is a collection of general personal reflections about my experiences with dogs (and at times rantings), along with some pieces that eventually blossomed into published articles about working dogs.
I hope that you enjoy my work as much as I do in creating it.
