My story dates back to my pre-school years, when I once had a nightmare and then took several pieces of paper, and compiled the events, plus my own drawings, into my very first book. It was my first time using writing and creativity to help ground me, to manage my fears and emotions. Throughout elementary school, I invested much energy into writing spelling-words stories on a weekly basis, and came to cultivate the power of the creative mind.
In high school, I took creative writing electives, the highlight of my day, and mastered poetry, fiction, and non-fiction material. In the Honors Program at Queens College, there was one clear path for me: an English major, and under the tutelage and guidance of amazing professors, I landed my first internship at Parent Guide, writing and producing material for their monthly paper. I was also a Teacher's Assistant for a Freshman College English Composition class. I later graduated Phi Beta Kappa, got married a week later, and moved to Philadelphia.
In Pennsylvania, I took a job as a middle school math teacher, and as an enrichment instructor, which instilled within me a passion for connecting to and mentoring students. When I went on to have my own children, I put them as a priority above my own career, and was foremost a wife and a mother, and then a writer, committing to mostly freelance work, blogging, and writing workshops.
My work has appeared in Parent Guide, The Parent Paper, OU.org, Chabad.org, The Jewish Link, Times of Israel, Aesthetic Dentistry Magazine, Skirt.com, and I was the winner of a writing contest on JewishStoryWriting.com.
In my role as The Essayist, I specialize in helping children, teens, and adults organize their thoughts, gather material, connect to what they are passionate about, and build the perfectly written piece. I hope to be able to allow people to transfer their feelings into words, as I once experienced as a young child. I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients, and look forward to helping you. Get in touch to learn more.
