I’m a lady writer based in the great Pacific Northwest. I write fiction and non-fiction, and some of my favorite topics are: pop and web culture, women’s issues/feminism, motherhood, and anything else that allows me to throw in a boyband reference. My work has appeared on The Atlantic, Bustle, Romper, Refinery29, Hello Giggles, Mapquest, Extra Crispy, Mommy Nearest, and more. Before launching my writing career, I worked in higher education in both admissions and career services (in other words, essays and résumés).

In between family and writing, you can find me putting too much creamer in my coffee, indulging in synthy pop music, or doing nerdy paper crafts. I learned how to type on my dad’s home office typewriter around the same age as the picture below, and I can do 90 words per minute (maybe 35-40 are good). Cheers!
