Life is short, and so am I. You’ll hear this quip from me often. I believe that life should be lived to the fullest and with passion. For me, that has always meant, as the Greek poet Horace so aptly stated “Mix a little foolishness with your prudence: It’s good to be silly at the right moment.”
I work hard, and play hard, and on the best days, my play is my work, and my work is my play. I want to share the wealth, and spread the joy. I have been known to get groups of strangers up and dancing or doing the limbo. And I bring that same passion to my work with writers. Writing can and should be joyful. Getting into a state of flow, becoming so lost in the writing that my fingers can’t move fast enough and the minutes and hours fly by is one of my favorite things in the world, and I want to help you find that place too.
I have coached hundreds of writers and taught over 100 writing courses. I have also taught formally and am a certified teacher and university professor with over a decade’s experience. I am also a Vermont 2015 Teacher of the Year nominee. I was selected for this honor for my implementation of neuroscientific principles to engage learners and to address their individual needs. I bring that same level of care and attention to my work with my clients. Currently I am an adjunct professor at Norwich University and a full-time writing coach and author. Want to know more?
I am offering an upcoming writing retreat and a conference on creativity at Harvard University. If you are interested in working with me one-on-one to help you start, finish, or fine-tune that writing project, we can set up an initial consultation to see if we’re a good fit. You can book those here.
