From a young age I've always loved creative projects, writing, drawing, painting, and story-telling (in various ways). Picture books have always been special to me, as I've carried my favorites with me through college, cross-country moves, and into family life. Now I'm on a journey of writing my own!
I have an inspiring and meaningful career in higher education focused on leadership, gender equity, social justice, and student development. This work continues to give me purpose and inspiration. It inspired me to start writing for children in the first place, along with the children in my life.
I'm a member of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and Julie Hedlund’s 12 x 12 Challenge, and am represented by Kelsey Klosterman and Charlotte Sheedy of the Charlotte Sheedy Literary Agency.
Bonus: a few fun facts about me - I love quotes, travel (which includes circumnavigating the globe on a floating university), and I'm obsessed with anything teal/turquoise or chocolate.
