ABOUT

I’ve spent most of my life in Appalachia—from Pittsburgh to Western Maryland to Asheville to West Virginia—but recently landed in Baltimore. After earning a BA in creative writing from Warren Wilson College, I spent 13 years working in newspapers and magazines as a features writer and editor, with a focus on arts and culture, the environment, health, and spirituality. I’m interested in transpersonal psychology, astrology, dreamwork, and plant medicine, the last of which translated to my becoming an herbalist through Rosemary Gladstar’s herbology program. My poetry, essays, columns, and feature articles have been published in Baltimore magazine, Frederick MagazineReal Frederick, Elegant Living, The Frederick News-Post, USA Today, The Washington Times, The Washington Examiner, Pittsburgh City Paper, Lines + Stars, and Hidden City Quarterly, among others.
