Writer & Editor
I grew up working at my family's motel in upstate New York, dreaming of the day when I could get out into the world and work with words.
For the past eighteen years I've been doing just that: I started my career in book publishing in the Boston area and then moved to New York, where I earned an MFA in Creative Writing from The New School. In 2008 I joined the National Book Foundation, a nonprofit that promotes literature and puts on the annual National Book Awards. In 2013 I transitioned from the office building to the home office to work as a freelance writer and editor while caring for my young son. Then, in 2022, I took on the role of Associate Agent at The Shipman Agency, where I represent authors for their readings and speaking engagements. You can find my resume here.
As for my own writing, I am at work on my first novel, based on my motel childhood. You can find links to some of my published work here.
In addition to reading and writing, I'm passionate about environmental issues, animals, bargain hunting, and yoga. I live in Brooklyn with my husband, son, and pet rabbit.
