About Me

I am a former attorney and legal publisher. I now write personal essays, memoir, and poetry. My writing most often centers around interpersonal relationships with ourselves, others, and the natural world. I also write features on health and wellness. My work has appeared 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 on the academic side of legal publishing for a decade. I’ve also taught legal writing at the University of Minnesota Law School.
