I might have been born with a pencil in my hand.

Ok, not really, but writing has always been one of my greatest passions, and I have worked hard to make a career out of it.

While, currently, my primary focus is teaching and tutoring, I am also widely published in a variety of online and print media. My articles have been featured in many animal-related and parenting publications, including Horse Illustrated, The Morgan Horse Magazine, Dressage TodayMamalode Magazine, Chronicles of the Horse (Untacked), Young Rider, Scary Mommy, and more. I also contribute to my local and regional magazines and newspapers.

Here you’ll find samples of just some of my published work:

I am the owner, founder, and content creator for the Frantic Mama website & social media channels.

Check out for more of my Motherhood/Parenting work with a splash of irreverent humor.
