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 AvenueMs.Huffington Post, Bustle, and a lot more that I have linked in my portfolioI dabble in all sorts of topics, but my favorites are disability rights, education, and social justice.

I was interviewed by Her Campus as part of their “How She Got There” series, a segment on For Creative Girls, and an interview with the popular English major website Dear English Major.

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.

I have shout-outs in RVA MagazineThe Commonwealth Times, and the VCU English Alumni Spotlight page.
