Who I am.

I am a writer, poet, activist, and all-around creative. 

I am passionate about storytelling and its ability to transform the world. Words can be powerful, if we use them well. They influence our opinions, expand our knowledge, and have the ability build bridges of compassion and understanding. My hope is that my words will add something positive and important to the conversation. Most often, you'll find me writing about feminism, identity, mindful living, food, and wellness. I'm prone to use oxford commas and semicolons—and the occasional em dash.


I studied English at both Dickinson College and Flagler College before graduating early honors with my Bachelor of Arts in 2013. During my undergraduate career, I also dabbled in creative writing classes and women's & gender studies courses. I received my certificate in nutrition through Cornell University in 2016. For the past few years, I've worked in marketing and communications, helping businesses, organizations, and individuals find their voice and engage their audience.

I currently freelance for a variety of publications; most frequently, my local monthly newspaper, The Observer. I also visit schools where I teach workshops in creative writing, nonviolent communication, wellness, and emotional intelligence. In my spare time, I write poetry, bake, meditate, and volunteer in the arts.
