Hi! I’m Rebecca. I thrive on coffee, lifting heavy weights and spending just enough time with people. Things I could do without? Laundry, dishes and alarm clocks on weekends.

The un-official bio…

Rebecca Alwine is an army wife, mother of three and lover of her adorable pirate dog. Over the past 14 years, she’s discovered she enjoys coffee, lifting weights and most of the menial tasks of motherhood. Her days consist of working out in her (new!) garage gym, audiobooks and pretending to cook while her Instant Pot and Air Freyer do all the work. Her motto: work smarter, not harder.

The Freelance Writer

As a freelance writer, I have over 7 years of professional writing experience, which includes military family topics, research pieces, guest blogging and much more. I currently work as the Spouse & Family Editor at Military.com.

My work can be found in over 30 publications including USA Today, Courier Newsroom, Parent Map and ScaryMommy. I spent a few years as a contributing writer for ARMY Magazine, and I have also been published in Ms. Magazine and The Atlantic’s City Lab.

In 2018, I moderated a panel on freelance writing at the Military Influencers Conference and spoke at the South Carolina Writers Association Professional Development Workshop.
