I’m just a Long Island girl who’s passionate about grace, authenticity, and good red wine. I moved to South Africa when I was 19, where I pioneered and led a nonprofit organization for 13 years. The bests and worsts of my life happened on that beautiful continent, and Africa will hold my heart forever.
Life changed drastically after my marriage and ministry came to a screeching halt at the hands of infidelity and divorce. Starting over in every possible way is exhausting and lonely, but by the grace of God—and countless hours of therapy—I’m still standing.
I now live in Nashville, Tennessee (and am convinced that living in Africa prepared this Yankee for life in the South). I’m a Nonprofit Communications & Development Strategist, a freelance copywriter/editor, and the founder of One Word 365.
I’m an extroverted introvert who lives with more questions than answers. I laugh really loudly, dance in the car, and burst into random off-key songs. I hate choosing favorites, am on a lifelong search for the perfect margarita, and write occasionally but candidly about searching for God in the question marks of life and faith.
