I'm a poet, educator, freelance writer, marketing and communications specialist and nature lover. I'm an unbalanced yogi, a lover of goats, birdsong, coffee, and hikes. A mountain gal in an ocean town chasing the "blood jet" of poetry.
I have a heart for the military community and have worked closely with service members, veterans and their families for over a decade. I have a Bachelors in Liberal Studies from Virginia Wesleyan University, and an MFA in Poetry from Queens University of Charlotte.
It's never too late to find the space you belong in. I am currently serving in an Americorps program with the Virginia Service and Conservation Corps in a Career Development program for Natural Resources. I have never felt more at home!
I believe in the power of words. I believe poetry saves lives. It has saved me over and over again. I believe in following your obsessions, even if it hurts. Check out my social and follow me!
