I am a visionary and a hopeless romantic. I strive to realize perfection within chaos and to inspire others through the power of language. From the corn fields of Ohio, to the mountain landscapes of Colorado, my passion for language, for the art of composition, has taken me on an incredible adventure across the world.

I’ve dedicated myself to the art of communications, devoting the past 8 years to my passion for writing and education. I am always searching for the project, the space where I can unite these driving forces and continue to inspire, motivate, and guide others. With a diverse array of marketing, and editorial skills, extensive experience in communications, and a belief in the power of teamwork and community involvement, you will find that I am a high energy and dedicated individual with the experience, passion and flexibility to capture your vision and realize your goals.

As a writer and editor of fiction, nonfiction and poetry, I have the opportunity to work with newly discovered and soon-to-be legends including Travis Cebula, Marie Larson, Nate Jordon, Bhanu Kapil, and Elizabeth Robinson. As an editor for Cella Magazine, I am able to interact, engage, and converse with individuals who are actively changing the world around us for the better. I am inspired by the art of communication, and I am moved by the landscapes that surround us, the stories that build us, and my work and life serve as an example of that passion and motivation.

I have also had the incredible opportunity to work in multiple facets of education and management and to both learn and teach amongst diverse and inspiring communities. For the past four years, I have taught remedial English composition, Advanced Composition, American Literature, and Creative writing to a diverse student body in both traditional and nontraditional classrooms. I have served on numerous committees, been nominated for Teacher of the Year, and have presented in the 2014 Faculty Summit on Remedial Education. I have also spent the past two years as a English Subject Matter consultant, writer, and editor for developing, desigining, and composing content for K-12 online schools. Students, nonprofit organizations, clients, and administrative staff have referred to me as a guide and cheering squad, a “firecracker.” I believe that my extensive experience in education as an academic writing, creative writing, literature, and technical writing instructor paired with my commitment to community involvement and my skills in writing and editing enable me to communicate your message and capture your vision..

As a creative, dedicated, and results orientated professional with a strong track record and a promising future, I look forward to speaking with you to discuss the value my strengths and experiences can bring to you and your vision!
