I am a writer, editor, and reader from the Green Mountains of Vermont. I have an MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars and a B.A. in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College.
My memoir, Feed Me, was published by Casper Press in December 2022.
I edited the mental health recovery anthology, A Tether to This World: Stories & Poems About Recovery (Main Street Rag, 2021). My first poetry collection, Staring Too Closely,
will be published by that same publisher in August 2023. Preorder your copy now!
More than thirty of my short stories, essays, and poems have appeared in print and online. My story "No One Will Ever Hear You" won Noir Nation's 2020 Golden Fedora Fiction Prize. My story "Ember" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. See Publications for a full list of publications.
I write for my local newspaper, The Valley Reporter, have freelance written and edited, taught writing, and been a developmental editor for New Degree Press. I also have a decade of experience in the educational nonprofit field.
When I'm not writing, you can usually find me snowboarding, reading, or cooking.
