I am an award-winning author of eight books. As Editor-in-Chief of the American Diversity Report, I edit and publish articles on cultural differences, the environment, education, world religions, immigration, and urban planning. As a Huffington Post contributor, my writing is policy oriented. My articles are syndicated in local newspapers and appear internationally in the Harvard Divinity School Bulletin, European Women in Construction & Engineering,The Bermudian Magazine, The Journal of Ecumenical Studies, and Journal of Public Management & Social Policy. My historical memoir, The Liberator’s Daughter, is part of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library. My book, Teaching Curious Christians about Judaism, was taken to Vatican City as a gift for Pope Francis.
Media outlets have featured interviews of me including: Online Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, The Tulsa World, Chattanooga Times Free Press, Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding, and CSPAN BOOKTV.
My editing work began decades ago as a freshman at Radcliffe/Harvard where fellow students paid me to edit their writing. I began creating company newsletters almost twenty years ago, serving as both editor and online publisher. Recently, I have increased my focus on editing for publication. See Coaching and Editing for more information.
Technical writing has been an ongoing element of my work, whether as Development Director of the Chicago City Ballet, Investment Correspondent for Chemical Bank, or Research Coordinator for the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee/ Chattanooga.
Organizations that have given awards to my work include: American Planning Association/ Chicago, diversitybusiness.com, Unbought & Unbossed/ Girls Inc. of Chattanooga, and the National Catholic Press Association. I was also appointed to the Tennessee Advisory Committee to the US Global Leaders Coalition association with the State Department.
Currently headquartered in Tennessee, I’ve lived, studied, or worked in British Bermuda and in multiple cities in the US: Boston, Chattanooga, Chicago, Cincinnati, New York City, and Tulsa.
