I'm a writer, artist, teacher, and mother. My restless nature has led me to explore many ways to express my creativity. I enjoy poetry, pottery, watercolor and needle crafts.

I lead a weekly Read & Critique Group at San Diego Writers, Ink, and I am the director of a non-profit preschool, where I get to work with some of the most creative beings on earth.

I have an MFA in Creative Writing from Pacific University in Oregon, and a BA in Studio Art from UC Santa Cruz.
