I’m a freelance journalist based in Vail, Colorado, with in-house editorial experience as the former Digital Editor of Vail-Beaver Creek Magazine. I’ve been published in 5280 Magazine, Elevation Outdoors, Forbes Travel Guide, Backpacker Magazine, Aspen Sojourner, and Vail-Beaver Creek Magazine. My work has spanned sweet après ski substitutes to backcountry huts to the future of farming in Colorado. Before I decided to get serious (sort of) and pursue writing full-time, I lived in New Zealand and backpacked through Southeast Asia (although, I still find time to travel however and whenever I can). In a former life, I was the Silverton Alpine Marathon’s first female finisher in 2014 (seriously, I have the trophy to prove it), but now I prefer racing my dog around the trails behind my house.

During my time with Vail-Beaver Creek Magazine, I was in charge of all digital content and digital strategy, and contributed extensively to the magazine’s print publication (reported features, services packages, interviews, front of books, issue development—you name it, I did it). Even though I’ve gone rogue as a freelancer, I still contribute extensively to Vail-Beaver Creek, along with Cityvision, a custom publication that’s also produced by VBC‘s parent company, Sagacity Media.
