About

Hi. Need a seasoned professional writer who lives and breathes sustainability? I am open for very selective opportunities from truly forward-thinking organizations. You get the benefit of my global corporate and editorial background coupled with intense advocacy work and significant pro bono leadership positions powered by passion. (Note: my pro bono dance card is full.)

I particularly like to write profiles. Here’s a special I’m running for Biketober.

If you think we’re a fit, let’s talk. Bonus points (and possible discounts on 6-month contracts) if you’re a B-Corp, nonprofit, or corporate sustainability powerhouse. Best part? Together we can change the world. See Put Stories to Work for You.

About Me:

Author of three published books, hundreds of articles, and thousands of blog posts — including a daily blog I was hired to create and then write every day for a year for Cox Enterprises’ Kudzu.com titled Hot Off the Vine, with Pattie Baker about all aspects of green building and sustainable living.

Here are a few mobility-related articles (I also have tons of published organic agriculture articles, plus I was a monthly columnist for New Life Journal):

Sustainability: Coming to a City Near You (one of many feature articles of mine published in Urban Farm magazine, written when where I live became the newest city in the USA and I was appointed to create and lead the Sustainability Commission):

Bicycle Tips for Female Travelers (published on the truly stunning magazine/site Unearth Women)

Shared Scooters Seem Sustainable, but Are they Really? (published on SmartsCitiesDive, GreenBiz, and Ensia)

Bike Friendly in a Blink (published in Atlanta Velo City magazine)

(see here for articles other journalists have written about my outreach work); 

First Metro Atlanta Bicycle Mayor;

Peace Corps invitee (I was scheduled to leave for Peace Corps Uganda in June 2020 but that has been delayed, possibly forever, due to the global coronavirus crisis — here is an excerpt from my book-in-progress about that journey);

Professional communications specialist with major media outlets and global corporations including Gannett, Turner Broadcasting, MetLife, UPS, and Cox Enterprises (see LinkedIn profile and portfolio samples);

League of American Bicyclists Cycling Instructor (#5382) (see my current classes here);

People for Bikes Ambassador

Founder and first chairperson of the City of Dunwoody Sustainability Commission (appointed by the mayor when where I live became the newest city in the USA — now a certified gold-level Green Community from the Atlanta Regional Commission); and Steering Committee appointee on the city’s first Comprehensive Land Use Plan;

Co-creator of the largest volunteer-run community garden in the State of Georgia (as well as numerous other food-growing gardens for those in need);

Member of Mensa;

Survivor of road violence.
