She’s been published in The Atlantic, RELEVANT, Education Post, American Songwriter, Christianity Today, Gradient, Thought Catalog, and others.

She is a writer for hire, meaning she’d love to write for you in exchange for money. Free writing isn’t totally her thing, but free drinks are. When she’s not writing, she’s coaching teachers and working in education leadership development. The above picture is her at age 22, and she plans to use this picture for most “professional opportunities” in the foreseeable future. She no longer owns this tie dye shirt specifically, but has recently committed to wearing tie dye exclusively during the summer of 2016.
