Other cool stuff:
I have presented papers on women in literature at conferences throughout the Southwestern United States.
I hold an M.A. in Creative Writing from Northern Arizona University. In my “spare time” I’m pursuing an M.A. in TESOL because I want to travel the world and give the gift of language to as many people as possible.
I’ve taught college English classes, online creative writing courses, and have had a number of jobs as an English tutor and editor.
My work history also includes jobs teaching English and yoga in India, working as a barista, and working as an advocate for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Currently, I’m passionately pursuing my dreams of writing, teaching, and editing for a living.
