A new, monthly magazine covering Lane County, Oregon, and what makes it such a great place to play, learn, grow and live.

PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center Foundation

Fundraising has lots of great stories–of people helped and lives saved by donations from generous folk with kind hearts. I’ve had the privilege of writing about donors who’ve made a difference and the patients whose lives have been changed for the better.

Cornerstone, the donor newsletter for the three PeaceHealth foundations in Oregon, won several marketing communications awards, including two MarCom Gold Awards and a Hermes Creative Gold Award.

Rochester insider was a free newsweekly published by Gannett, Inc. covering events, why it’s cool to live in Rochester, places to go and products you never thought you’d want to buy.

Crossroads Chronicle

From 1999-2000, I was a staff writer and columnist for the Crossroads Chronicle in Cashiers, N.C. I covered local events, profiled people of interest and provided insight into the workings of the community. I was published under the names Silandara Skydancer and Silandara Bartlett.
