Background

I am a Colorado native and a current resident of the Midwest. I have also lived on Nantucket Island and traveled most of the United states.  After receiving a BA in Creative Writing from Colorado State in 2011, I started working as a marketing writer. I wrote for a variety of start-ups, local marketing companies and private individuals. I received my MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Columbia College Chicago in the Spring 2017.

I have a background in tourism and also worked as a barn manager for Parnell’s Irish Cobs from 2010 to 2013 before I left to work in Nantucket. Having lived in Wisconsin, Colorado, and Illinois, I feel a strange pull between city and country.
