A professional storyteller with a passion for people and a penchant for purple, I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. I created my first newspaper when I was 7 and published my first book, Dinosaurs in Outer Space, shortly thereafter. Although it didn’t go on to become a bestseller, that didn’t stop me from pursuing my dream of become a writer.

After seven years as a full-time journalist, I’m currently the media relations manager for Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana. My #SideHustles include freelance writing, blogging and editing Stories She Wrote, a quarterly online literary magazine I created for young women of color.

When I’m not busy blogging or contributing to girl-powered publications such as Sesi magazine and Brit + Co, I enjoy reading, dancing and eating my way through Chicago. I’m also passionate about mentoring and empowering young women.
