Rebecca spent her childhood in the Pocono Mountains climbing trees, jumping over creeks, and hiking in the forest. She loved being a kid so much that she dedicated her adulthood to working with kids in several different roles including, an afterschool program director, Girl Scout troop leader, children’s missions coordinator, tutor, preschool teacher, reading specialist, and school psychologist. While working for Boone County Schools, she was named the Kentucky School Psychologist of the Year for collaborating with teachers and administrators to write and evaluate an emotional intelligence curriculum. Currently, Rebecca is a children's author and a dyslexia practitioner.
Rebecca attended Georgetown College, Eastern Kentucky University, and most recently, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, earning an MLS with a concentration in creative writing, children’s literature, and literacy. She is a member of the North Carolina Writers Association, Charlotte Lit, and the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
Although she doesn’t climb trees or jump over creeks anymore, she still enjoys a leisurely hike in the forest with her husband Steve, four kids, and three dogs in the North Carolina mountains, the setting of many of her stories.
