Sallie has been writing for as long as she can remember.

In her youth, she was often happiest scribbling stories, writing poems, or reading novels and magazines. In second grade, she was awarded the writing prize at her elementary school, thus marking her first official milestone in the world of words.

Years later, on the East coast, writing became more than just a pipe dream. While studying for her Master's at Johns Hopkins University, Sallie found her calling in the community of letters. In school, she learned how to hone her craft. Furthermore, she learned the business of writing and how to share her stories with others.

Today, Sallie is a contributing writer for numerous regional and national publications. In both print and digital media, she pens about her passions and varied interests through personal essays, profiles and features.

She strives to write thoughtful, eloquent stories that educate and enlighten, intrigue and inspire.
