About Me

I discovered my passion for writing in sixth grade and have been writing ever since. In high school, I turned that passion into reality by publishing my first novel, At Center Line, in 2016. Its sequel, Beyond Center Line, followed in 2020 as I began my senior year of undergrad. I’ve also been published in various literary magazines and journals with poetry and creative nonfiction. During my studies, I served as the Senior Fiction Editor for Reed Magazine, Issue 156, have worked as a writing tutor and writing professor, and have held positions in marketing and communications.

I earned my BA in English with a Writing emphasis and a Women Studies minor from Aquinas College. Recently, I completed my MFA in Creative Writing, with an emphasis in Fiction and Poetry, from San Jose State University. Alongside writing, I work as a dancer instructor and marketing professional.

When I’m not writing or teaching, I’m probably spending time with my dog, who encourages my writing everyday.
