The Lifestorian™️

I'm a former journalist turned stay-at-home mom with the coolest job ever. I help people write their memoirs!

My mission is to make memoir writing affordable and accessible to writers and non-writers alike. By bringing memoir out of the typewriter age and into the internet age, I hope to see a world where more people experience the luxury of a lasting legacy. To encourage life reflection so that more people can live emotionally healthy lives, at peace with themselves and also with those around them.
