Journey of an Author

My parents understood long before I did that I was a writer. What clued them in was the tornado that always followed me: scraps of paper, journals, and books with words I couldn’t understand.

I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Political Science, but quickly realized that poli sci wasn’t my calling. I went back to school for a graduate degree in education and am now teaching kindergarten. I adore teaching in the same way that I adore writing–it provides me with the sense that the world is full of possibility and splendor.

I believe there is a special place in our world for storytelling. Stories provide our world with a moral compass, entertainment, a way to express sorrow and happiness, and connect us with the past and future.

I write because I want to express these things and much more. Mostly though, I write because I love it.

I’ve been writing seriously since 2010. When I’m not writing, you can find me exploring the outdoor world: hiking, trail running, rock climbing, and slacklining.
