I grew up with two English teachers for parents and I am (unfortunately) the person everyone in the office comes to for grammatical advice. I am an avid reader and I love to write fiction as well. I have taken writing courses at Story Studio Chicago and am currently a student in the comedy writing program at the Second City Training Center.

My real passion, however, is history, which is what I received my minor in in college. From the ancient world to 19th and 20th century Western Civilization, I see history as a collection of stories and I absorb as many of them as I can.

I received my Bachelor's degree in Sociology from Central Michigan University. In addition to my training, I have worked as a substitute teacher in a number of subjects, including Special Education. I currently work in sales for an Information Technology company.

I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge with others and I look forward to working with you!
