Strengthen Your Writing, Reach Your Goals
WHAT I DO
When you work with me, we work together to help you achieve your goals and strengthen your writing, whether it’s for work, school, a personal blog, job or grad school applications, or anything else. I believe that the process is just as important as the product, and will work with you to help you not only produce a better piece of writing this time, but to become a better writer for the future. Not sure where your issue is but know you’re stuck? No worries — I’ll help you tease it out.
WHY I'M PASSIONATE
I have a PhD in Composition and Applied Linguistics from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and an MFA in Creative Writing & Poetics from Naropa University, where I worked for two years as a Writing Fellow in the Naropa Writing Center. I also served one year as Head Writing Fellow, helping to oversee the NWC program and implementing best practices in the field of writing tutoring. I taught first year composition at Carnegie Mellon University for two years, and am currently a Visiting Lecturer in Composition at the University of Pittsburgh.

I work with clients collaboratively to help them achieve their goals and strengthen their writing, whether it’s for work, school, a personal blog, job or grad school applications, or anything else. I take a holistic approach to writing, and offer creative solutions for common challenges including grammar errors, writer’s block, and brainstorming & draft planning. Whatever your writing challenge, I’m here to help you through it without judgment or pressure.
Graduate School Applicants
