I’m a freelance journalist living in Prague. Previously from Arizona, I have a degree in Broadcast Communications and a mini-MBA in Social Media Marketing. While in Arizona, I spent many years in community relations for a number of organizations, including retail and non-profit. My previous news writing stints include a national newswire service and two television stations.
Since moving to Prague in 2004, I’ve contributed to a number of international and local publications, including The New York Times, International Herald Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, Business New Europe, Going Places, JetAway, The Prague Post, Czech Position, Expats.cz, The New Presence and Prague Monitor Magazine. I’m the editor of Prague In Your Pocket, wrote the Insider’s Guide to Prague for Australian website Ninemsn and have worked with three publishers on guidebooks to Prague and the Czech Republic: Time Out, Fodor’s and Rough Guides.
I have a range of experience writing and editing for non-native English speakers, including 8 years working for Czech magazine Bridge; as founder and editor-in-chief of The Word and as head English content editor at FluentU. I gained online and social media experience while Content Manager for Expats.cz and editing experience as Editor of Fast Lane, a quarterly lifestyle magazine.
I prefer to have a wide range of subjects to muse over and include travel, culture, design and architecture amongst my credits, as well as business and education.

When not pounding the keyboard, I enjoy traveling, reading, running, caffeine and torturing my husband and dog with extremely long walks.
