“You ask a lot of questions,” a friend once joked.

It’s true. I’ve always been intrigued with people’s stories. The career they picked, the person they married, the mid-life crisis that propelled a mid-life change.

I read memoirs, I peruse blogs, I watch the Biography channel.

And, also, I write.

For some 20 years, I worked as a writer for health and social services organizations. I wrote to educate, to generate awareness, and to raise funds.

Today, with Leaves of Your Life, I write to honor and preserve people's memories. I write my passion.

I hold a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Michigan, am a member of the Association of Personal Historians, and am certified as a guided autobiography instructor by the Birren Center. I currently live in Herndon, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C.

If you’re interested in telling your life story, I’d be honored to write it for you. Or guide you as you write it yourself.
