Hello! I’m a mom, wife, teacher, sister, and entrepreneur, from Chicago IL, transplanted to Charlotte, NC. My work blends teaching, strategy, lifestyle, and storytelling in a way that allows teens to build writing skills that shape their future.

The process of being a mom and business owner and teacher has been an exhilarating mix of gritty, exhilarating, devastating, and remarkable moments.  My experience positions me perfectly to help more good, motivated teens reach their highest potential in the world. 

Even the most exceptional kids lack the personalized attention to ensure they write with style, organization, and specificity given their busy lives,  given their teacher’s focus on many other students in a classroom, and given their reliance on technology. 

Even the most intelligent, caring parents do not have the experience or time to teach the most essential writing skills and fear jeopardizing their relationship with their teens especially during the college application season.

I’ve dedicated my life to helping kids believe in specific outstanding qualities about themselves no matter how difficult, sometimes, it is to see and to teaching them how to put these thoughts on paper.

Whether your teen needs guidance on fundamental writing skills to earn great grades in English class or more sophisticated technique on how to write essays for college applications, I’m your friendly yet strict teacher, I’m your inspirational resource, I’m your person who loves to weave in a bit of humor when we can.

So get ready, let’s write! 


When I’m not busy helping high school students excel with their writing, you can find me soaking up as much time as possible with my husband Rick and our four children, Emily, Molly, William, and Sarah.  Inspiring teens isn’t my only passion, either. 

I’m also a distance runner turned master swimmer and love to relate my struggles to complete a workout to help motivate  my students as they complete their essays. I may be slow in the pool… but I love every second of the challenge. 

Be your teen’s hero during the college admission process:

Completed college applications Outstanding college essays, submitted on time.

Fortified in my mission to provide teenage students with the unique opportunity to enhance their writing skills, set achievable goals, and develop emotional confidence.  I created educational programs that yield better grades and college admissions. 

From Charlotte, North Carolina to Winnetka, IL, my students learn to create powerful college admission essays, win scholarships, and boost their grades withOUT parents having to be the hovering, nervous-but-well-intentioned arm-chair teacher. 


Ultimately, it’s your teen that tells the story, with college admission essays, not me. Beware: your teen’s writing skills will sky rocket and grow like never before.
