I’ve used words to create other worlds throughout my life, understand my feelings, educate, and open doors for others to recognize and understand that they weren’t alone. 

With a Bachelor’s in English and Creative Writing and a Master’s in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University, I took my hobby and made it a career. Whether through writing, teaching, mentoring or running a self-publishing business, I make sure to surround myself with creativity and follow my passions.

I strive to illuminate diversity and reduce stigma by creating authentic, vulnerable, and strong characters. I hope that my readers will embrace their own qualities and be inspired by my character’s journey. Representation is important. While I recognize I can only play the part so much, I do what I can to create original stories. I refuse to let my platform go to waste without inspiring, motivating, and encouraging change.

When I’m not writing, I’m helping other writers by editing, proofreading, and self-publishing their books through my company, Represent Publishing

In my downtime, I enjoy yoga, practicing mindfulness, camping, and reading. You’ll always find me with coffee in the morning, and ideally, distracting myself with a good book.
