I am currently working towards a PhD in Creative Writing. I have an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow. My essays have appeared in Spry Literary JournalFat City ReviewFrom Glasgow to Saturn, and my memoir-in-progress was long-listed for the 2014 Mslexia Women’s Memoir Competition.

In addition to writing, I’m a part-time university instructor of writing composition and literary analysis, a volunteer at homeless shelters and hospice, a half-way decent cook, a hiking-monster, and a cat lover.
