“At the intersection where your gifts, talents, and abilities meet a human need; therein you will discover your purpose.”

— Aristotle

My parents always used to say I was “born with a pencil in my hand.” Luckily my mom survived.

As far back as I can remember, I’ve loved drawing and writing—from sketching loved ones to writing poetry for the school newspaper.

This love has informed my career and hobbies. Now, you can find me writing everything from silly jokes and snarky blog posts to critical copy for fundraising campaigns and educational programs.  I use my communication skills to make people laugh and make the world a more just and compassionate place.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy traveling, dabbling in comedy, and spending time with my elderly dog, Dakota—walking with her, taking her to the dog park, and ignoring her eye rolls as I kiss her face. I also enjoy learning new things. Currently, I’m learning to sing and play guitar, and I can’t ever resist a book, article, or podcast about management or social change.

I work full time promoting animal rights, and in my free time I volunteer on projects to advance racial and gender equity.
