I am a writer, educator, and editor currently working on a poetry dissertation titled Wire Mother Cloth Mother. The collection features persona poems about Harry Harlow’s experiments with rhesus macaques regarding the nature of love and attachment.
I am also an educator at the Hilliard Art Museum, and a New Books Network podcast host for the Animal Studies channel.
My poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in Notre Dame Review, RHINO, Sugar House Review, Blue Earth Review, Quarterly West, Santa Clara Review, among others.
My three rescue cats, Moxie, Lux, and Lemur, are my dear friends and cowriters.
I am a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200) with Yoga Alliance.
