I am a Catholic blogger, writer, and speaker with almost 30 years of experience.
I was a correspondent for the Tennessee Register and the East Tennessee Catholic (both diocesan newspapers) and later a columnist for the ETC on Life Issues. I was a founding member and later Chair of the Diocesan Respect Life Committee for many years. During that time I helped to develop a pro-life religious education curriculum; assisted in bringing two nationally-known pro-life speakers to well-attended events; and participated in organizing a day-long seminar on beginning and end of life issues. I also gave several talks, participated in panel discussions, and led workshops on life issues during this time. I have been blogging since 2010, writing about a variety of topics. My work has been featured on BlogHer and YourTango. In addition to my own blog, I participate in a group blog (Everyday Ediths) about Catholic Womanhood, and help to moderate its associated Facebook page and group.
I also contract as a grant-writer and editor for a couple of local non-profits, and run my husband's law office from home.
I have an A.B. from Georgetown University, where I majored in Honors English and minored in Theology.
