Storytelling has always been my passion. I received an MFA in Creative Writing with a concentration in fiction from Lesley University (MA) and a BA in English Writing & Literature from Saint Mary’s College (IN) where I was the editor-in-chief of the school’s literary magazine.
As a writer, editor, and copywriter, I handle everything from research and SEO optimization to writing, editing, and content creation. My goal is to help tell stories. I offer writing and editing services to both individuals and businesses. I, also, work as an account manager for a feminist communications firm and handle a wide-range of needs: communications, public relations, marketing, social media, events, etc.
I am a member of the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWWP), the Editorial Freelancers Association, Dames Collective, and Soroptimist International, an organization that empowers girls and women through educational opportunities and scholarship funds. I am a member of the anti-human trafficking committee and help run the annual 5k walk/run for human trafficking awareness. I volunteer for Dream It, Be It, an after-school program that educates and supports middle school girls.
I love frequenting coffee shops, practicing yoga, and hiking. I have taught writing classes in the Midwest and on the East Coast, as well as online. I have backpacked across the U.S. and CA using Amtrak and last year, I spent one month at the Gullkistan Artist Residency in Iceland. I am working on my first novel.
