About Me

Always a writer.

Most people learn to read and write, and then they fall in love with stories. For me, the opposite was true. I fell in love with stories first.

As a young girl, I struggled to put letters into syllables and words. With each book in my hand and every daily spelling test, I failed to understand the meaning behind the letters.

My transformation into a writer was painstakingly slow, and then lightning fast. When I discovered that the words created something — they told powerful stories — I fell in love with their ability to sharpen the truth and weave compassion into the hearts of readers.

Since those first moments of enchantment, storytelling has been at the center of my life. I worked at independent bookshops, received a liberal arts degree from Davidson College, taught English to students, and assisted some of the greatest minds in academia — all while writing on the side.

In 2014, I struck out on my own to make this vocation my career.

Now, I split my time collaborating with brands as a communications consultant and writing as a contributor for Travel & Leisure and Misadventures Magazine. My work has garnered the attention of national publications and clients like Google, Fidelity, and Prudential.
