A freelance writer, editor, and writing instructor, I received a BA in English Writing and Literature from Saint Mary's College (IN) and an MFA in Creative Writing from Lesley University (MA). I completed a collection of short stories for my thesis and am currently working on my first novel.
I spent nearly five years working for an independent book publisher in Boston. After leaving the company, I went on to work for a boutique travel company, a brewery, a marketing agency, a business consultant, and a law firm. When I'm not working or writing, I'm volunteering for a woman's organization, raising awareness for human trafficking, traveling, and reading multiple books at once (it can be done).
