After a 15-year career in corporate marketing, communications, and publishing, I decided it was time to go in a more rewarding direction. I looked back on my work and discovered I was happiest when I could research and write stories about people and when I had the opportunity to design elegant documents. As writing and design are my passions, it was a  natural transition to start a business recording personal stories and packaging them as beautiful books.

Working with clients one-on-one, I am committed to listening closely and writing their stories with care, celebrating the lovely details that make each one so special. I'm also committed to excellence in graphic design and typography, so when your book is complete, the whole package will truly shine.

Thank you for your interest in Storied Lives. If you wish to discuss a project or would like to see some samples of my work, please contact me.
