About me

With experience in print magazines, newspapers, and books, I moved to Rhode Island in 2018 after earning an MFA from Georgia College and State University and worked as a copyeditor for Southern Rhode Island Newspapers for a year and a half. I recently transitioned to lifestyle magazine publishing with Providence Media as the assistant editor of magazines such as Providence Monthly, Hey Rhody, and others. My writing highlights the vibrant dining scene and small businesses in Providence, and I also write marketing copy for all magazine social media platforms and a weekly e-newsletter featuring upcoming events. Previously, I worked as a writing consultant and teaching fellow for three years, teaching introductory writing courses to first-year undergraduate students. I was also the managing editor and layout artist of SLAB, a literary journal and served as the managing editor of Arts & Letters and an associate editor of 2040 Books, an imprint of Santa Fe Writers Project that publishes and promotes books by writers of color. I copyedited content and laid out book interiors using Adobe InDesign for all of these organizations. I have freelanced as a graphic designer for five years creating posters, promotional materials, labels, ePUB conversions for published books, and other documents, and I spent a summer writing ad copy and newsletter content for the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council as an intern.
