With an Bachelors Degree in Journalism with an emphasis in public affairs, minor in visual media, and concentration in online video from Hastings College, I have extensive experience writing news stories for Hastings College media,, and the Harry Potter Alliance. In September 2018, I published my first novel. I also have over five years worth of experience in social media management and content curation.

As of January 2018, I am a staff writer for the Harry Potter Alliance's quarterly WAND magazine which involves writing assigned stories that focus on the nonprofit organization and social activism.


Excerpts from my published YA novel can be found through the Amazon Kindle app.


From May to July 2016, I was the summer social media intern for Stuff 'n Mallows. Duties included creating promotional graphics, managing social media accounts, and promoting product through social media campaigns
