Although I have always loved to write, my formal education did not focus on creative writing.  I graduated from Northwestern University with Honors in Religious Studies and then I earned my MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business with a focus in marketing and finance.


Before I started writing, I worked in brand strategy consulting and marketing for over ten years, moving between San Francisco, London and Manhattan.  I currently live in Westchester, NY with my husband, three children, and two dogs (Cocoa and Graham).

I've written five books: The Way I’ve Heard It Should Be, Second Chances, Only Summer, First Came Us, and The Last Summer Sister.
