About – old


Welcome new friend! I’m so excited to meet you here! I am a freelance writer, podcaster, author and mom of two living in Indianapolis, Indiana. My kids are Jacob (6) and Abby(3) and my husband is Rick.

I write about addiction, church planting, mental health, politics, policy, culture, fitness and more a variety of publications in including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Washington Post, National Review and more. She is a regular contributor at Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC.)

I host the “Worth Your Time” podcast, featuring inspiring women living out big dreams and making a difference in the world. The podcast is faith-based and seeks to highlight the stories of women living and loving others well.

I have a new book coming out in 2022 for Christian women and mommas. If that’s you, I hope you’ll stick around here and keep an eye out! Sign up above to make sure you don’t miss a thing. There will be special bonuses for the ladies on my email list!

My first book, “Leaving Cloud 9: The True Story of a Life Resurrected From the Ashes of Poverty, Trauma and Mental Illness” was released from Harper Collins publishers in 2018.

Leaving Cloud 9: The True Story of a Life Resurrected From the Ashes of Poverty, Trauma and Mental Illness

I wrote “Leaving Cloud 9” for those who have suffered trauma of all kinds — and have or are seeking to overcome it in the future. My husband, Rick, grew up neglected and abused. He was seemingly destined for a life of drugs and depravity. By the grace of God, he overcame. This is the story of his miraculous healing — both physically and mentally.

After enduring years of trauma, suffering from depression, going through divorce and personal destruction, he emerged in the light and gives Jesus the credit. We hope his story inspires hope and gives glory to God.

In the past my work has been featured in the Washington Post. I previously worked for National Review magazine, was Online Media Director for Congressional House Leadership, for the Heritage Foundation and Human Events magazine.

I was selected to be featured in Washington Life Magazine’s “Young and the Guest List,” which spotlights rising stars in Washington, DC:


I have appeared HLN to talk about the opioid crisis and her book, and  on NBC to discuss social media trends.  In the past, I have also appeared on Fox News and MSNBC and regularly hosts Facebook Live interviews with newsmakers.  I was formerly a regular contributor on social media concepts at The Huffington Post and has appeared multiple times on HuffingtonPost Live.
