About me

Occupation freelance writer and teacher
Location Minneapolis
Introduction I'm a mama and writer and teacher. I've been helping mothers tell the stories they need to tell since 2006. I'm the author of Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers and Ready for Air: A Journey Through Premature Motherhood, winner of a 2014 MIPA Midwest Book Award, and co-author of Silent Running, a memoir of one family’s journey with autism and running. My writing has appeared in a number of journals, including Brevity, Los Angeles Review of Books, The New York Times online and Poets & Writers. I have an MFA in creative writing from the University of Minnesota and I teach online, in Ashland University’s Low-residency MFA program, and at the Loft Literary Center.
