Professional Editor and Writer

About me

“Here I thought these words just walked,” author Sarah Hepola once told me in an interview.

“Now I see that they fly.” 

That same passion fuels my own work as an editor and writer—the power of the written word to convey moments both dark and delightful, relatable and surprising. Give me a topic, and I will paint it with words that pop and push and punch until they take flight. 

In my five years as a media professional, I've written music reviews, human interest profiles, and trend stories, but most recently my career has taken me into a deep dive of the real estate space. 

As the Managing Editor of HomeLight, the leading marketplace for connecting home sellers with the best real estate agents based on their actual performance history, I run our Seller Resource Center where we publish hundreds of in-depth articles and resources to tackle every step of the home sale process.

Previously I served as the Managing Editor for Inman News, a top source of residential real estate industry news and trends for agents and brokers. 

I've covered the intersection of real estate and technology, housing and demographic trends, disruptive business models as well as real estate industry and MLS politics. In March 2018 I co-authored the book, Leadership: How Real Estate Leaders Can Act Decisively to Change the Industry.

I'm also a proud homeowner, dog mom, Mizzou J-School alumna and Midwest native.
