I'm a senior-level editor, journalist, essayist, and poet from New York City, currently living in Nashville. I'm a graduate of Vassar College (BA), New York University (MA), and have also studied at St. Andrews University in Scotland, the Center for Book Arts, and the Unterberg Poetry Center.

I have 10 years of experience in print and digital publications covering women's issues, news, travel, health & wellness, design & home, work, literature, politics, poetry, and sometimes ghosts. I'm also well-versed in editorial strategy, management, and envelope-pushing. I'm a fan of originality, inclusivity, and the Oxford comma.

The stories that change the game are the only stories worth telling.
