I live in Birmingham, Alabama, right by the train tracks that cut through the city. I am married to Tim, and we have a daughter, Riley, and a son, Brady. I’m earning my MFA in creative writing from Seattle Pacific University and do freelance writing and copywriting. Making room for others and their stories is also a priority for me. I’m grateful to have a lot of opportunities to do so through my writing and through my roles as wife, mom, friend, neighbor, and volunteer with InSpero and Desert Island Supply Co.
Some of my favorite things are gorgeous golden ginkgo trees in the fall, steaming hot toddies in the winter, new signs of life in the spring, and reading under an umbrella on the beach in the summer. Regardless of the season, I find joy in quiet mornings to myself while the rest of my family is still asleep, in learning about new musicians and authors and artists who do good work, and in experiencing those "A-ha" moments during the creative process.
