I recently revised/completed a full-length poetry manuscript, "Fertility Is A Found Object" and am working on two memoirs - one, my whacky adoptee story, the other is about my relationship with body image/self-love via poems and prose.

Through my work, I desire to connect with and inspire others so they may feel their own stories and discover their unique voice.

Thank you!
