Native to central Pennsylvania, I studied creative writing at both Susquehanna University (B.A., 2004) and Penn State (M.F.A., 2007). My poems and book review articles have appeared in a wide range of print and online publications. My chapbook (short collection) of poetry, Lo & Behold, was published by Finishing Line Press in 2009. My full-length poetry collection, Evensong for Shadows, was published in 2018 by Resource Publications, an imprint of Wipf and Stock Publishers. I work in higher education as an instructor and academic support administrator. My husband and I are busy raising our two children.
