I am an award-winning journalist with over 15 years of professional experience. I have won 50 professional journalism awards including two Emmy’s and two national journalism awards from SPJ.

For over 10 years, I produced consumer and investigative news for KGTV, the ABC affiliate in San Diego.

My writing, which has a young, conversational tone, includes many lifestyle, food, health and feature reports.

My work has been published in The Creators Syndicate, Family Health & Wellness, San Diego Style Weddings, The Daily Meal, The Latin Kitchen, The New York Post and Mediaplanet’s supplements in The Washington Post, USA Today and The San Francisco Chronicle, among other publications.

She's able to write about a broad range of topics, consistently meets deadlines and delivers quality, well-researched and engaging articles. It's truly a pleasure to work with her.”
