I am a writer and a traveler who is currently working on her MA in English/Professional Writing at Northern Arizona University.  Additional samples of my work can be found in my travel blogging portfolio.

I have traveled travel far and wide, but find some of my most memorable travel experiences happen close to home. My passion is writing about unexpected places; places that wouldn’t necessarily be the first consideration for a destination, but when you are there, you are really glad you went!

There is adventure in obvious and not-so-obvious places that are close to home, and I often bring my JD along for the ride.  Based in the Chicagoland area, there is a wealth of inspiration right outside my door.
