Bio

I hold a BA in Communication that culminated in a capstone titled “Creative Writing in the Digital Age,” which challenged Marshall McLuhan’s assertion that “The future of the book is the blurb.” I went on to earn an MFA in Creative Nonfiction Writing and, after several years working in the nonprofit sector, I recently pursued a second graduate degree in American Studies with a particular focus on Women’s Social History, American Labor Culture, and Public Health Narratives. My academic and creative work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, and literary journals, with circulations from regional to global, and I have taught classes in Writing and Women’s History.

My professional communications and public history experience ranges from writing and editing for Boston-based private companies and nonprofits to consulting for worldwide media agencies and has primarily focused on the social sciences, public health, and higher education sectors. I’ve also engaged in many volunteer activities, including grant-writing for independent schools, English instruction to non-native speakers, and serving as editorial staff of an international literary journal.

In addition to my education in Communication, Creative Writing, and American Studies, I hold certificates in Graduate Teaching and Resource Management and have completed academic work in Two-Dimensional Design and Strategic Planning. I love the fickle weather and spectacular landscapes of New England, where I reside with my husband, my children, and always at least one friendly feline.
