I am a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley (Spanish).  For 15 years I worked as a writer and editor in the San Francisco Bay Area in the fields of public relations, marketing, trade journals, educational associations, rural healthcare, and healthcare computer systems.  Within those areas I have written magazine articles, newsletters, press releases, product brochures, speeches, video and slide show scripts, grant proposals, and more.  Since leaving California I have taught on the Navajo Reservation for Navajo Community College and St. Michael’s High School, worked as a freelance writer and editor, and served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused/neglected children.  My husband is the CEO of Little Colorado Medical Center in Winslow.  We have two sons, ages 15 and 17, and a really, really big dog.
