I’m a writer and professor from San Diego, who recently earned her doctorate in English from Oklahoma State University. I specialize in Creative Nonfiction and Rhetoric and Writing Studies. I hold an MFA from the University of California, Riverside. I have a passion for professional and public writing, literature, and nature. My work has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Harper’s Bazaar, The Normal School, Columbia Journal and elsewhere. I am currently working on two narrative nonfiction book projects, and will share more soon!

I am a mother, sister, wife, friend, daughter, friend of animals.  🙂

I am a writing coach and am happy to help aid you in any writing related project. I can provide thoughtful and detailed feedback and vision for essays, cover letters, book proposals, and more.
