Hi there

I’m a writer with a passion for stories about folklore, travel, women’s history, small business, arts, and entrepreneurship. I have a decade of experience in nonprofit PR, and my freelance work is published in/on Atlas Obscura, BRAVA Magazine, Discovery, and elsewhereI’m a regular contributor to On Wisconsin Magazine and serve as a consultant for Commetta Communications and Oak Philanthropy.

I’m a candidate for an MFA in creative writing at the University of Alabama, and my fiction is published in/on Nimrod International Journal, Heron Tree, and Psychopomp Magazine. I also hold a master’s degree in journalism and mass communication from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I conducted peer-reviewed research on urban/rural tensions and collective memory. I was named a finalist in the 2017 Francine Ringold Awards for New Writers.

I’m originally from the small but mighty city of Beloit, Wisconsin, and I now live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, after a detour in Europe.
