From attending yearly Young Authors Conferences throughout elementary school to penning plays for my classmates to act in, I’ve been writing since I could pick up a pen. These days, writing is a big piece of my professional life and also an outlet for my personal life.

I studied English and Secondary Education at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and taught for a year before deciding the education field wasn’t for me. I went back to UAB for grad school, specializing in English Rhetoric & Composition. My thesis focused on the rhetoric of new folk music. My career has spanned several facets of training, marketing, writing, and customer experience.

My other passions are traveling (I’ve been to 31 states and 5 countries so far), lifting heavy things, and yoga. On any given day, you can usually find me in the gym swinging kettlebells or busting out squats. I’m a Harry Potter nerd (Ravenclaw House) and love to rewatch the Buffy the Vampire Slayer tv series once a year.

I live in Birmingham, AL with my beagle mix Oscar and black cat Rupert Giles.
