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 Assay JournalBrevity’s Nonfiction BlogAngels Flight, literary west (AFLW)Agate Magazine, Grown 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. Using my degree, I worked as a law clerk, lawyer, acquisitions editor for a major legal publishing company before being promoted to publisher for the academic imprint of that publishing company. I’ve also taught legal writing at the University of Minnesota Law School.
