I'm a 38-year-old author from Buffalo, NY. Until September 2022, I lived in Bremerhaven, Germany for 11 years and worked as a teacher and Zumba Fitness instructor.
I write for Huffington Post, Insider, Elephant Journal, Buffalo Rising and Buffalo Spree. I am also the recipient of first place award for creative non-fiction in the Olive Woolley Burt Award given by League of Utah Writers.
In my spare time, I am at the gym, reading everything I can, gardening or attending poetry open mics around town.
Drop me a line if you want to know more about me or my work! Always happy to communicate with readers.
