I'm a writer, researcher and all-around nice person. I specialize in podcasts and marketing content, but—as a former teacher—I'll always have a passion for education. I value meeting deadlines, listening to client feedback and producing high-quality work. My professional background is included further down this page. Ready to work together now? Email me here.
In May 2016, I graduated from The University of Kansas with a bachelor's degree in Secondary English Education. I taught high school English, public speaking and debate for five years in Topeka, Kansas. I was nominated for the Kansas Horizon Award, awarded the MACE Education Grant and presented at multiple national conferences, including the National Council of Teachers of English annual conference. I earned my master's degree, also from The University of Kansas, in Education Administration in May 2020.
I began working with the National Writing Project as an education consultant in July 2017. In June 2018, I created a podcast under the patronage of the Flint Hills Writing Project. The premise of the podcast was to provide K-12 teachers a platform to share their most important ideas. I wrote, produced and edited all podcast content.
While teaching, I was freelance writing for education content websites. Starting in September of 2017, I was a regular blogger for Edutopia, where I was awarded SmartBrief Education's "Editor's Choice Content Award" and my work was published in education magazines nationwide. I also wrote SEO-focused content for various technology companies.
In 2022, I became a full-time writer and researcher.
