side notes...

In addition to writing, editing and communications, I'm passionate about music and poetry. Poetry awards from the Poetry Society of Colorado and the Denver Woman's Press Club include 1st Place and 3rd Place recognitions, and a 1st Honorable Mention. 


As a scholarship recipient at the University of Colorado College of Music, I earned a bachelor's in music (piano performance). From there, I joined the faculty of the Center for Musical Arts and maintained a private studio for many years.

Music and poetry remain active interests and daily inspirations.
