About Me

In a nutshell, I’m a 20something trying to make it postgrad!

-Born in Charleston, SC, currently living in Corvallis, OR

-Finished my B.S.  in magazine journalism at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication (where Ann Curry, one of my idols, graduated from!).

– I’m a journalism lover! Maybe you should call me a jourdie (journalism-obsessed – I’m coining this term!)?

-I’ve interned at Eugene Magazine, Metroleta, College Lifestyles, Her Campus Magazine, and Lavish Living Magazine

– I currently freelance blog for BookRenter.com in addition to being a contributing writer at The Huffington Post; you can check out my first article for HP, written Nov. 2012, here.

-In addition to those gigs, I taught English in the Democratic Republic of Georgia. The blog I kept while over there is over here.

– Funnily enough, although I spent so much time and money studying journalism, I work with kids mainly. Writing has become more of a side gig. I really enjoy teaching, goofing off with the kiddos, and being able to build Lego houses and get my hands splotched in paint each day. What could be a cooler job?!

– When I’m home I love reading, traveling, going to the movies with friends, trying new recipes, going for drives, rocking out to loud country music, and being adventurous however possible.

– My blog is a mix of ramblings, features, rants, etc. I love writing and sharing what I learn and care about, and I hope you’ll share what you care about with me, too!

Follow me here to keep up with what I’m doing and where life takes me (and what goes on in this awfully curious head of mine).
