The Writer/Coach

Hi! I'm so glad you are here! If you haven't already, check out the Downs Ups & Teacups "Our Mission" page to see what this is all about! Bottom line: we are a place for storytelling, dreaming, and growth!

To get to know me as a wife, mama, professional writer, and life coach, here is a short introduction:

I am married to a fun-loving, resourceful husband and am a mama to two contrasting kiddos whose complete opposite demeanors end up making them perfect partners in crime. My son is an adventure warrior while my daughter is a thoughtful caregiver.

I value freedom, connection, growth, change, and creativity. Traveling, journaling, and trying new things are my top three favorite self-care rituals. Beauty is something I can easily recognize even in the messy parts of life. 

My writing journey started with imaginative short stories as a young child from a small town in Indiana. It later turned into a professional website, resume & cover letter writing, and numerous blog post contributions to various sites.  I wanted to find a way for my writing skills to be of value to those around me, and that's when I started Downs Ups & Teacups. 

Relationships, collaboration, and the sharing of stories are life-giving to me. The tears cried, bubbling laughter, and genuine connection that occurs around the teacup is something I have always treasured. Life isn’t always glamorous, so it’s important to talk about the hard things–the downs– alongside the celebrations–the ups.

Here I combine my writing and coaching professions, introduce clients to my offered services and cultivate discovery and expression through storytelling.

Maybe you are looking for a place to grow without pressure and seeking support as you journey toward a simpler, more intentional life.

Well, you've come to the right place!

Please engage and participate! My hope is that this will be a community where we grow together and a place that provides a positive environment to come, read, and stay awhile.

You are welcome here!
