Want to know a little more about me?

I’m a professional writer. Since 2010, I’ve been a freelancer and, since 2011, a freelance copywriter in Nashville, TN, writing about everything from special education to manufacturing parts. I started food blogging before food blogging was mainstream and maintained another site for eight years. I also co-authored The Einkorn Cookbook (Fair Winds Press, 2014), created with my husband, Tim. I live in Nashville, in a mid-century fixer-upper, with Tim and our two small kids.

My writing has been featured by The Kitchn, MSN.com, Everyday Health, Better Homes & Gardens, Houzz.com, Food News Journal, Food52, Zeit Magazine, Mom.me, Babble, Delish.com, Parade, Foodista, Entrepreneur and Ragan PR. I’ve created recipes and shot photos for brands such as Larabar, Kroger and Aldi/Bon Appetit.
