Thank you for visiting my portfolio site! I am an experienced writer and editor looking to join a collaborative, creative team in the Midwest. I’m a proud Omaha native, and I currently live in the Kansas City area.
I received a Master of Arts in English from Kansas State University in 2017. My emphasis was in Creative Writing – Poetry. (I completed a collection of poems exploring particle physics — I’d love tell you about the massive particle accelerator beneath K-State’s campus.) My work has been published in such literary venues as New Limestone Review, fields magazine, and The Spectacle’s Revue, and is forthcoming in Mid-American Review.
I recently moved back from Lexington, Kentucky where I worked as a Marketing Assistant for University of Kentucky HealthCare. I wrote and edited print and digital marketing materials, and worked closely with our social media manager to manage our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. While he was on paternity leave in early March, I took over as Social Media Manager during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. I held this position for two weeks and worked closely with our digital, design and video teams to create useful, compelling, reassuring content during a time of extreme uncertainty.
I also hold a Bachelor of Science in English with a minor in advertising from Northwest Missouri State University.
