My published writings.

Writing isn't temporary, it's forever.

I write in a daily gratitude journal. I write The Morning Pages daily, following The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron.

I write for a professional blog at seoplus+, where I work. I write for my own blog. I write for Apartment 613, an Ottawa-based blog with community recommendations. I write pieces about local businesses for another Ottawa directory, Upfront Ottawa.

I've written for the Telfer Career Centre professional blog. I've written for the Telfer School of Management blog. I've written blogs for my first baby site.

Point is - I write. I love writing. Whether it's digital marketing news or business advice, sharing about Ottawa artists or delving into my personal story with mental health, I write.

In this collection, explore my published works. I hope you find something that inspires you.
