I tell stories.
I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was a little girl.
The fact that I make a living writing is a dream come true.
I worked in the nonprofit sector for more than a decade. In my final role, I worked in business development for the consulting arm of a school leadership nonprofit.
Writing was always calling me home.
In 2011 I went back to school (while working full-time) to get my MFA degree in creative writing through Fairfield University’s low-residency program.
Then I got sick.
For about three years I struggled with chronic fatigue so severe that I was not physically able to work full-time.
My health now is better than ever. And that experience taught me how to do more with way less time – so I’ve structured my business according to a 3-day work week.
I teach and coach clients who want to write more powerfully and more vulnerably.
I write for a select few.
I’m working on my second novel.
I’m married to the love of my life, Simeon, and together we have two little lovebugs: toddler Elijah and baby Jacqueline. We live in Connecticut.
I’m obsessed with Queer Eye, long walks, massages, podcasts and decaf coconut milk lattes.
I’m passionate about self-development and coaching as a path to deeper service.
I’m committed to doing less and making more, in order to disrupt the starving artist standard and #hustle culture.
My mantra is… work soft.
My favorite holiday is… Thanksgiving. I love food and spending time with my family. Also, not buying gifts.
My favorite books right now are… City of Girls, by Elizabeth Gilbert. Love, Stargirl, by Jerry Spinelli. Bare, by Susan Hyatt. The Bookshop on the Shore, by Jenny Colgan (and pretty much anything she writes!). The Peach Keeper, by Sarah Addison Allen.
