I am an emerging writer from Colorado. My essays are published at Bat City Review, Catapult Magazine, and Atticus Review. I also recently won the Pacifica Literary Review 2019 Creative Nonfiction Contest judged by Mellisa Febos. I’m a recipient of artist grants from the Millay Colony for the Arts and Vermont Studio Center. All the while I work as the Communications Director for an organization that builds meaningful connections through responsible travel to foster a more compassionate, just, and inclusive world (furloughed due to Covid in March of 2020).
My book of essays, under the working title, MY OCEANS: Ecofeminist Reflections on Motherhood in the Face of Climate Crisis is newly represented by Julie Stevenson of MMQLIT.
