I’m interested in telling stories with meaning, about hope, perseverance, and the goodness in people. Stories about standing up to fight for your rights, about picking yourself up and moving forward when all other options are unbearable. 

Parts of me are sprinkled in every screenplay I write. Some of these things may be too painful to talk about, but putting them on paper is cathartic. Telling these stories may touch someone and show them that they are not alone.

Hope and justice are threads that run through all of my stories. Whether it’s standing up to cruelty and injustice to women, or saving a kidnapped orphan from a deadly fate, or opening a woman’s heart to love after a decade of heartbreak. Without hope, we die a little every day. I believe that bringing people together to fight for something positive, one justice at a time, lifts us up, and brings us hope.

My screenwriting has brought me several accolades. I am a Gold Script Writing Award winner in the WRPN Women's International Film Festival, a Top Romance Film & Screenplay Festival winner, and placed as Finalist in Table Read My Screenplay, the California Women’s Film Festival, and the Lonely Seal Film, Screenplay and Music Festival. I’ve placed as Semi-finalist or Quarterfinalists in multiple screenwriting competitions. 

In addition to screenwriting, I am a Guest Services representative at The Pasadena Playhouse and the Dolby Theatre, in which my tenure has included sixteen Academy Awards.  After many years in the advertising and entertainment industries, including The Walt Disney Company, my decision to focus on my writing has been the most fulfilling.  I can’t imagine a day going by without being able to write and create stories.
