A Bit About Me

Hi there! Allow me to introduce myself.


My name is Carly and I love words. Not just any words though. I love well-crafted words. Words strung together in a magical way. Words that: 


  • Organize vague ideas into motivating messages 

  • Tell stories that awaken dreams and renew hope 

  • And inspire readers to take healthy action steps 


Naturally curious, I love learning. I devour books, articles and life’s lessons. I enjoy discovering my next favorite restaurant and delight in exploring new places. And I’m passionate about capturing magical moments through photography and sharing them with others.


Embracing the life I’ve been given, I cherish simple pleasures: 

  • Glimpsing delicate wildflowers breaking through the snow 

  • Feeling the vibration of my cello as it resonates through me 

  • Hearing my children laughing together 

  • Savoring freshly-picked berries from our garden 

  • Leaping into a pile of autumn leaves with my kiddos

  • And watching the evening sun slip behind the mountains 


These moments of pure bliss keep me grounded and remind me to treasure every minute. Life can feel tedious at times so I like to mix it up by making time to get lost in nature as often as possible. Armed with a profound sense of wonder, I’m just as likely to explore a new trail with my camera in hand as I am to be nestled into a hammock by the lake working on my laptop. 


If you find yourself needing words, images or creative ways to reach your target audience with your life-changing message, let’s chat.

Cedar Creek Academy

Home Educator

September 2002 - June 2021 

Teacher, Principle, School Nurse, Cheer-leader, Janitor, Gourmet Chef, Chief Bottle Washer...


If you've ever homeschooled your children, you understand what it means to be responsible for everything that happens (or fails to happen) regarding your children's education.

If you haven't homeschooled your children, there is nothing I can say that will adequately explain my work experience.


However, the fact that I taught for 19 years says a lot. Either I wasn't half bad at it...  or I'm crazy.
