I always knew I wanted to be a writer. I started out as a bookworm who checked out stacks of books each week from the branch library in my neighborhood on the southwest side of Chicago. In high school and college, I wrote for the student newspapers. After earning a bachelor’s degree in journalism, I worked as a staff writer for several small daily newspapers in the Midwest before venturing into business journalism. I landed a job writing about mom-and-pop retailers for a start-up business journal in southeastern Virginia. After a few years, the itch to live in a bigger city struck so I moved, with my husband and our baby boy, to Brooklyn, New York. I worked as an associate editor and was later promoted to section editor at a national weekly trade journal in Manhattan. Since 2007, I’ve been working as a freelance writer, editor and corporate communications consultant.
Yes, I’ve done a lot of business writing, but that’s not the only topic I find fascinating. As a late discovery adoptee, I created this blog, Revelations, to share my memories and impressions and provide a little insight for adoptees and adoptive parents. We’re all in this together!
