I’m a writer, copywriter, speaker, and host of the Hope for the Lonely podcast. My work has appeared in The Washington PostCatapult, The Millions,  MockingbirdChrist and Pop Culture, and elsewhere. I am writing my first book which explores connections between belonging, loneliness, and faith. It will be published by Fortress Press in the fall of 2020. I am also training to become a spiritual director and will begin working with clients in June of 2020.

I’m currently booking speaking engagements on topics connected to belonging, loneliness, and faith. Learn more here.

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 alone while the rest of my family is still sleeping, in learning about new musicians, authors, and artists who do good work, and in experiencing those “A-ha” moments during the creative process.

I live in Birmingham, Alabama with my husband and our two teenage children.
