About

Hi. I ride. I write.

You may enjoy my books, (all proceeds benefit folks in need) — and tap into my blog if you’d like to travel along with me. Note: I was scheduled to leave for Peace Corps Uganda in June 2020 but that has been delayed due to the global coronavirus crisis. (If interested, here is my story about that journey.) (If interested, I also blog at Food For My Daughters.) 

Here is a small selection of my published articles (see here for articles other journalists have written about my outreach work). You may find something helpful on your own journey:
