In 2019, I lost my beloved dog and best friend of 13 years, Bono.

His loss left a great hole in my life, to distract myself, I threw myself into my favorite hobby: reading.

In August 2019, I started my Instagram bookstagram account “openmypages” and began my journey with being a proper book reviewer.

In 2019, my goal was to read 70 books and I smashed that goal and read 107.

My goal for 2020 was to try to read 120 books and with the pandemic limiting my work travel, I’ve been able to more than double that. I wanted to up my review game so within no time, my Goodreads account was smoking and I had started reviewing on Netgalley. Since then I’ve collected 6000+ followers and partnered with many authors and publishers to review.

I’ve decided for 2021 to transition to hosting my own blog and see how that impacts my review life. I’m excited for this journey and hoping that you all will join me and help make some suggestions about what you’d like to see from openmypages.

Thanks so much for tagging along!

I am the Vice President of Clinical Affairs for a medical device company where my job is to promote the utility of the device to doctors. I have science and business degrees and have editorial experience in medical communications. In college, I served as an Editorial Assistant for a healthcare communications company and have served on two editorial boards for peer-reviewed journals. In my free time, I always have a book in my hand... or two or three! On average, I read 20 books a month. I have looked to combine two of my skill sets to review on Goodreads and promote books on Instagram that I love to other readers. I'm open to partnering with publishers as an influencer for book tours, giveaways etc.
