“Here I thought these words just walked,” author Sarah Hepola once told me in an interview, speaking of the writers who inspire her.
“Now I see that they fly.”
Her simple message captured so perfectly the immense power of writing — the moments both dark and delightful, relatable and surprising — that only the rush of perfect syntax on a page can evoke.
That passion fuels my work as a wordsmith, editor, writer, researcher, manager and problem solver. My experience spans the spheres of real estate and technology, alternative health, music and culture. Give me a topic, and I will color it with words that pop and push and punch until they take flight.
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's 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.
