I was born and raised in Maine, AKA, home of Stephen King and Chickadees. I now live in Charleston, South Carolina, and I absolutely love it here. The winters are much more bearable. I have three sisters (one of which is a twin), and a brother. My husband Andy is the best thing that ever walked into my life. I never knew that such a kind soul could exist.
I am a writer by early morning (I'm writing this at 2:05am), an Elysia by day, and an entrepreneur by every other time. I want to be a best selling author one day and become a motivational speaker. My strongest memories from childhood are my sister dipping her lobster in my lemonade, and days spent running barefoot through my field. My writing idols are Suzanne Collins, Ellen Hopkins, John Green, E. Lockhart, Ransom Riggs, and Stephen King.
I run Sand & Snow Media, a social media and branding agency, and am Senior Sales & B2B Digital Strategy Lead at a local book publisher. I once started a t-shirt company where I inspired shirts after up-and-coming, awesome young people, and it was called Inspire Thread Company.
I believe that anyone can do anything that they set their minds to, and that we are only limited by our own disbelief. We were born to succeed and help people.
