Do you have a story living inside of you?
I can bring it to life.

I am a former editor from two award-winning publishing companies Rebel Girls and Cricket Media. I am an experienced publishing professional, and I put all of my industry insight into each and every project I undertake.

I am passionate about creating high-quality content for children and supporting those who don’t see themselves represented accurately—BIPOC and communities of color, LGBTQIA+ folks, and people with disabilities.

I have a broad knowledge of writing genres and styles, including (but not limited to) creative nonfiction, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, STEM, folktales, fairytales, poetry, podcast scripts, and graphic novels.

My Experience

  • 10+ years editing

  • 40+ publication credits in award winning children's magazines and books

  • Dozens of publishing industry contacts, including indie publishers, literary agents, illustrators, writing groups, authors, editors, and fact-checkers
