I am a writer, rock climber, eater, and hilarious joke-teller. I eat lots of bananas, and one of my feet is a size bigger than the other!

I have had the chance to explore many different fields around the country, and love working while being mobile! I worked in publishing and sex education in New York City, education and hospitality in San Francisco, and rock climbing in Massachusetts!

I designed and lead writing and college-readiness workshops for eleventh and twelfth grade students. I assisted students with homework and projects, and communicated daily with their teachers, counselors, and parents to develop individualized plans.
