My undergraduate career cultivated my love of words. In one way or another, words have made me who I am today: an educator, a poet, an artist, and a creative writer.

Since graduating from Arizona State University, I have pursued my passion through the lens of creative writing and teaching.

As of September of 2021, I have successfully published two books of poetry and will be premiering my first linked collection of young adult fantasy stories in December. Given this, I consider myself to be the perfect tutor for all your writing needs as you traverse the magical, messy process of creative writing.

Moreover, I believe words create a home within us and they're important as they open up spaces for us as human beings to wrestle with the world around us. As an educator, I constantly reflect on the intrinsic power of words and how I can hold space for you as you contemplate these meaning-based questions on the page.

My education has provided me with the interdisciplinary background, which I consider to be crucial for all teachers and fellow creatives. I am cognizant of gender theory, feminism, literature, hermeneutics, and the importance of communication and holding/creating space for my students.

Along with this, I have ample experience in mediating an online classroom environment through the Zoom Platform.

Perhaps, above all else, I would like to leave you with this final note: I believe your words pressed to the page are powerful and they're incredibly important. I promise to meet you as you cultivate them and listen closer to their meaning as you string all your words together.

I'm grateful for this opportunity to work with you and your words. Let's make them shine on the page, okay?
