I got a new job!

Well, it’s been just a little over a year at a fantastic job as web assistant at Family Circle. I’ve loved every minute of it but now it’s time for me to move on. Starting next week I’m going to be a staff writer at a newly launched site from Cafe Mom, Mamas Latinas. I’ll be writing a lot so I’ll be putting up more here, since it’s a good way to share my writing. You’re still welcome to check out my published clips, where I’ll be posting the best of the best, and I’ll still be blogging about health and recipes on The Fit Flexitarian. In the meantime, feel free to contact me since I’m always looking for more writing opportunities!
