According to my mom, I wrote my first poem — a little ditty about moonbeams — when I was four years old. Since then, I’ve written for a range of people from small business owners to multinational corporations like General Motors, Sands Casinos, Abbott Global Healthcare and Coca-Cola. My essays have appeared or will appear in publications like Christianity Today, Urban Faith magazine, and Under the Gum Tree, along with a few others. 

I graduated with my Master’s degree in Creative Writing at the end of 2016. In 2013 and 2016, I was awarded the Tompkins Award for my work in creative nonfiction. Currently, I’m writing a collection of essays about memory and identity.

I live with my husband, daughter and rescue dog, Bash, in a mid-century ranch. When I’m not working, I like cooking food with unpronounceable names, listening to records, crocheting, binge-watching Grey’s Anatomy and reading Supreme Court opinions. Come say hi to me on Twitter and Instagram.
