At the age of twelve, I published my first poem in the Chicago Tribune and entered into the Keep Chicago Clean contest. I published a variety of poetry and short stories for publishers such as Quill Books and the American Poetry Anthology as a secondary speech, drama and English teacher. My children’s stories have also received notoriety as two were chosen for honorable mention in the 2003 Writers Digest International Contest from over 18,000 entries. I written over 500 articles on inspiration and workplace development as the Chicago Career Coach for the widely read Examiner. But my writing extends beyond that scope, with high-level publications that include local newspapers such as the Chicago Tribune, The Patch, The Culture Trip, CBS Local, Grand and Reunion Magazine, Sacred Journey, Mature Years, Phoenix Focus, and Parachute Local MapQuest.
