I was a kid who struggled with reading comprehension at a young age. Thankfully, I have always been a passionate reader despite that. One of my favorite jobs was being the executive director at a public library for a couple of years. I was in the stacks as much as time would allow, trying to help people find their new favorite books. However, I have spent most of my career in marketing and communications. I have a bachelor's degree in business, major advertising, and an MBA, major marketing. I worked in a variety of industries, including churches, schools, restaurants, and more during that time. I joined the CED team in 2022 to help promote authors and their books. I am excited to connect people to you and your books!

My husband Alan and I have been married since 2002. We have a teenage daughter, Seleste, and our rescue dog, Miggey. Being from Michigan originally, we all love the water (kayak, canoe, swim, or float). We have moved multiple times and are currently living in Cincinnati.

1 Corinthians 13:4–8 is the way I want to be! It is my benchmark. While I fail often, I rejoice that love never fails. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” (NIV).
