Currently, I work as a writer, editor, social media manager, and content marketer. Before this, I served as a college lecturer, administrative assistant at multiple universities, independent bookseller, blogger, and volunteer instructor.
My previous work experience includes cashiering at a store that sold everything from rugs to socks to machetes; selling bath products and, later, women’s fashion; freelance newspaper reporting; shopping for strangers’ groceries; delivering mail; fulfilling interlibrary loans; coordinating academic departments; moving furniture; teaching children, incarcerated women, and college students how to write; selling vegetables at the farmers’ market; and editing and overseeing a variety of literary journals. In another life, I ran for the library board of trustees.
Bread baker, candlemaker, karaoke person, and dance machine. Prone to telling overly detailed stories and taking too many cat pictures. Currently writing a collection of essays and a speculative novel.
