I have been writing and photographing subjects since 2006. My professional life in photography began in 2009 where I photographed small coffee shops, online shop listings, and other products for small businesses.
I owned a photography business that also specialized in family portraits for five years before moving forward to full-time writing and small business consulting. My enjoyment of writing began with my original lifestyle blog and has expanded over the course of twelve years.
I am a double major in business management and communications. I have also trained in photography and digital design at my local community college. My passion for small business consulting and media have always gone hand in hand.
I have been featured in several online articles and my photography has been shared on Instagram by companies like Disney Parks and Chick-fil-A. Currently, I am writing my very first book that will be inspirational based.
When I am not developing recipes or photographing styled food, I am homeschooling my two children or enjoying date nights with my husband of 10-years. I married my high school sweetheart and could not be more grateful for an amazing partner in life.
As Pacific Northwest natives, our family enjoys getting outdoors and exploring our local neighborhoods. From great local eats to new mountain scenery, we enjoy exploring Washington State and beyond. Not to mention, my kids love being in the kitchen with me too.
I am excited to niche down as an official food writer and photographer via In the Grub. My hope is that this site inspires great weekday meals that you love. Also, I want to share some of our favorite local places to eat. Let’s dish out some weekday eats together!
