About Me

Writing

I write personal essays, memoir, and poetry, most of which center around familial relationships. I also write features on health and wellness, as well as those with an ecological focus. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in Angels Flight, literary west (AFLW), Assay JournalBrevity’s Nonfiction BlogGrown and Flown, MindBodyGreen, The Manifest-Station, The Rumpus, St. Croix 360, Topology Magazine and others.

Education

I hold an MFA in creative nonfiction from Bay Path University (’17). In 2011, I received my 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification and a Yin Yoga teaching certification in 2012. I graduated from law school in 1994. I worked as a law clerk, lawyer, and then, an acquisitions editor for a legal publishing company before being promoted to publisher of that company’s academic imprint. I’ve also taught legal writing at the University of Minnesota Law School.
