*I've coached dozens of students through writing college essays and love working with young people.
HobbiesI love the outdoors and last year hiked 60 miles of the Appalachian Trail and also ran in the Hood-to-Coast relay in Oregon. I was a total bookworm as a child and loved reading more than anything and feel very lucky to work with words for a living. I have two daughters (a high school senior and a college sophomore), and have coached many of their friends and my friends' children through writing their college essays, with great success.
