I am a writer.
I have been writing a personal journal for over 20 years and now teach others how to find healing, creativity, and authenticity through journal writing. After awakening in the night knowing I must do what I love, I began teaching a self-designed journal workshop in 2005 (whose debut was thwarted by a little hurricane named Katrina). I then discovered the Center of Journal Therapy through which I am now a certified instructor. As such I offer private coaching, workshops, trainings, presentations and informal writing groups around Vermont. I am currently working towards a Masters degree at Goddard College in Transformative Language Arts.
My response to life is to write it. I have words bumping around in my head which tumble out in my journal, blog and personal narrative essays. I am proud to say I am a regular contributor to Mama Says and have been published in the Rutland Herald. I also write journaling how-to articles at Examiner.com.
