“it is never an easy decision or task
to write about one’s emotional landscape.”
I am an artist, creative nonfiction writer, and poet pursuing my MFA at the University of South Carolina. Though I live in the south, I am originally from Colorado. The longer I am gone, the more I find western landscapes moving into my work. My passion is social justice and the way the written word can create change. I teach poetry workshops as social outreach, typically to marginalized or otherwise silenced groups. I write a lot in the areas of trauma and embodiment. Currently, I am working on a book length memoir that will serve as my thesis.
