Carolyn enjoys working with words every day as an editor and writer. She has worked on nonfiction, fiction, academic, and business writing for agencies, businesses, and major publications such as Frommer’s travel guides and Sierra  magazine. Her work transports her to different worlds: from surfing jaunts to interior design, California wine country to the pamphlet in your prescriptions.

Her career path was not without detours though. After graduating from SU in 1996, she earned her JD at Vanderbilt and spent twelve years working for hospital systems as a regulatory attorney. Although she’s settled down in San Francisco, she still gets nostalgic for the warm and friendly Texas way of life.
