Writer & Educator




I am a writer and educator.

I teach writing and reading in public schools and tutor students privately. I also lead writing workshops on memoir and poetry for youth and adults.

My nonfiction and fiction appear in the anthologies About Face: Women Write About What They See When They Look in the Mirror and The Long Meanwhile: Stories of Arrival and Departure. Stories and interviews have also appeared in Bitch magazine, including Oh Yoko!: 20 Years of Looking at an Art-World Icon.

I earned my master's degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing from Rutgers University-Newark. I am a certified English teacher in the state of New Jersey.
