Teaching since:
August 2010

I am a local writer, editor, and writing coach, and I have previously worked as an actor, theater educator, and horse trekking guide in South America. My life has been a mix of extreme outdoor travel and academic pursuits and I've had a lot of adventures along the way. I love teaching and working with students of all ages!

My strength is in working with students and writers at any stage in the writing process. Together we can productively brainstorm, make a writing plan, or polish a final draft. I can help you translate your creativity and vision into compelling, powerful words.
