My love for literature and creative writing led me to earn a B.A. in English literature and creative writing from Wheaton College, IL, in 2009.
Since then, I have worked for various organizations as an editor, communicator, and grant writer. My literary writings have also been published online and in print.
I write narrative nonfiction essays, memoir, and short stories, and I delight to find the bizarre and true in ordinary experiences. I am a lifelong learner, and I often discover stories through researching one of the varied topics that interest me – from childbirth, to marine biology, to history, to abnormal psychology, to ancient spirituality, to outer space – to name just a few recent topics I’ve explored in my writing.
I currently live in Denver, Colorado with my husband Jeremy Grant and my two children.
In my other professional life, I am a certified birth doula, or in other words, I am a non-medical supporter of women during childbirth.
I am also a follower of Jesus.
