I grew up in Virginia in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I now live in Bellingham, Washington in the rolling foothills of the Cascade Mountains. My husband and I are busy raising a lovely daughter, who is never not busy. I write poems, hybrid stories, essays, articles, and lots of social media posts. I’ve written a novel called Pale Mother that has yet to be published, and I’m working on a second called Paper Birds. I am the Assistant Director of Marketing and Communications for Advancement at Western Washington University and I have a habit of being involved in politics. 


I received my B.A. at Hollins University and my M.F.A. at Vermont College of Fine Arts. I also have done educational stints at the University of Rhode Island Goethe Institut and the Hochschule fur Film und Fernsehen in Munich.
