I'm a writer, editor and writing mentor for youth in crisis. I have volunteered with Pongo Teen Writing, a program that works with distressed youth in juvenile detention, psychiatric hospitals and homeless shelters, as well as local writing projects at psychiatric units, urban schools and non-profits that work with youth in foster care.
I received my MFA in Creative Writing program at Pacific Lutheran University. I also enjoy traveling, hiking and climbing.
