I also love dogs! That’s my guy, Elvis, and I 🙂

I’m a writer by heart, a teacher by passion, and a traveler by nature.

If you’re looking for a writing tutor in Bend, Oregon, I’m your gal.

Currently, I’m the content writer and editor for globalU — an agency I started in 2014, after teaching English in Thailand and China, to help others teach English overseas — and MissAdventure Travel, a space dedicated to inspiring solo and adventure travel.

My nonfiction has appeared in Emrys Journal, Traveler’s Tales, Alaska Airlines Horizon Edition, Skirt! and Animal Wellness Magazine, to name a few.

I also have experience teaching freshman composition (Writing 101) at Colorado State University, as well as working as a tutor in the university writing center.

In addition, I have worked in publishing and publicity, having worked for Malibu Magazine and BizBash Media. I’ve also helped market the following authors and their books: Garth Stein (The Art of Racing in the Rain), Jamie Ford (On the Corner of Bitter and Sweet), Heidi Durrow (The Girl Who Fell From the Sky) and Naseem Rakha (The Crying Tree), to name a few.

I hold a M.A. in English/creative nonfiction and a B.A. in journalism.
