I have always been a “nature girl” who loves reading, writing, and spending time outdoors. I live in Flagstaff, Arizona, where the sun seems to shine all the time and the mountain trails sing a song that’s hard to ignore.

I belong to a running group called the Flagstaff Trail Divas. We don’t take ourselves too seriously; most runs are followed by a meal and possibly a beer. But don’t think Flagstaff is only for outdoor enthusiasts! We have a thriving artistic community, and I volunteer with the Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival and Theatrikos.

I have a bachelor’s degree in natural resources conservation from the University of California, Berkeley. I love to edit, but at heart, I am still that nature girl. So if I’m not at my desk, red pen in hand, look for me backstage at the theater or out exploring the hiking trails near home.
