Location icon United States

I am a writer, a reader, and a traveler. My professional work with non-profits reflects my commitment to social justice and my deep desire to make a positive difference in our world. I earned my MFA in Writing from CalArts and my BA in Humanities with Women's Studies from New College of Florida, both writing-intensive degrees culminating in completed theses. Born and raised in Colorado, I have lived all over: Sarasota, FL; San Diego CA; Los Angeles, CA; Paris, France; and Merida, Yucatan, Mexico.

TRIO SSS Newsletters

Newsletter I edited; I oversaw layout, pictures, and proofing all content. I contributed articles as needed and wrote all copy without a byline.


The blog I maintained for a year in 2005-2006 is now locked, so I created a new blog home for some of the posts, a "best of."
