About Me

Writing helps me process my human experience and make sense of the world. I believe that God gave me a gift for analyzing and expressing my observation through the written word. I would love to share it all with you.

Growing up on the Plains I developed a deep sense of awe and wonder at God’s creation and the majesty of nature. Paired with a nearly uncontrollable wanderlust, I began travelling in college and have never stopped. (You can follow my latest travels on Instagram: @she.wonders). Travel casts the hues and colors and depth onto the canvas where I share my stories. It reminds me of where I came from and of the fact that this world is not my home.

I have always nurtured a secret passion for writing but the catalyst for sharing on a larger forum was telling my story of God’s grace thus far through words with my local church. My personal redemptive story was featured in The Church Issue of Grace Magazine. The liberation I felt in exposing my vulnerabilities and imperfections to my fellow sojourners in this mystery of life created the space I needed to continue to reflect on what God was teaching me and share it in hopes of helping someone else.
