I am a published poet and freelance writer with an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College in NY. I studied Italian language and literature at Smith College. My poetry chapbook, Unrest, is published by Finishing Line Press.
I teach creative and composition writing online at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Northampton Community College and Thomas Edison State College. I also work individually with adult students as a writing coach. I am the Special Projects Coordinator for Toadlily Press.
I spent four years living in Florence, Italy and am fluent in Italian. I teach Italian cooking and language lessons privately.
