A little About me
Once, I wanted to be a veterinarian, Shania Twain, and a writer all at once. I decided that being a writer and teacher was a better option. (But I still want to be Shania Twain.)
I’m the executive editor of Quail Bell Magazine, a publication dedicated to both real and unreal stories. I curate, edit, and write content for the site and brainstorm new ideas for projects with Christine Sloan Stoddard. One of those is the anthology Her Plumage: An Anthology of Women’s Writings from Quail Bell Magazine (2019) to benefit RAINN.
I think my younger self would be thrilled that someone liked my words so much that they put it on their website. I’ve written for Next Avenue, Ms., Huffington Post, Bustle, and a lot more that I have linked in my portfolio. I dabble in all sorts of topics, but my favorites are disability rights, education, and social justice.
I’m a proud alumna of Virginia Commonwealth University’s English and history majors out of the College of Humanities and Sciences (2016) as well as the School of Education (2018). (Go Rams!) Much of my career has been spent freelancing and teaching language arts.
