Welcome! My poetry chapbook Pulse was published by Ghost City Press in 2018 and is available for free online. My poems, essays, and articles have appeared in Alpinist magazine, Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, Calamity, Entropy, Frontier Poetry, Muse /A Journal, Poetry South, Voicemail Poems, and elsewhere. I earned my BA from UNC-Chapel Hill, and my MFA from Colorado State University, where I was awarded the 2018 Academy of American Poets Prize.
I’ve taught creative writing at Colorado State University and through Duke University’s Talent Identification Program, and worked as an editor for Alpinist magazine and Colorado Review. As a certified yoga instructor, I sometimes teach yoga classes, though that’s taken a backseat to my writing as of late. I also enjoy rock climbing, cooking, eating/drinking, traveling, skiing, hiking, camping, and spending time outside with my dog and fiancé. Originally from North Carolina, where I earned by BA in English and creative writing at UNC-Chapel Hill (GDTBATH every day!), I now reside in Salt Lake City, Utah.
