Originally from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, I found my way to Grand Rapids in 2004 to pursue a BA in Creative Writing from Grand Valley State University. I graduated in 2008 but struggled to find my place in the professional world. In January 2016, I returned to GVSU, determined to gain new skills and confidence to re-launch my career. I am now pursuing a BA in Advertising and Public Relations (PR emphasis), and I’m enjoying this opportunity to learn and be challenged. I look forward to using my writing and editing skills in my future work.
Besides school, I enjoy writing letters, having deep discussions with friends, spending time in nature, tending to my modest vegetable garden, and hanging out with my cat, Stella. I am interested in mindfulness, minimalism, and simplicity, though I don’t always practice each. I also enjoy spending time with a talented local artist and musician named Michael.
Oh, and I believe in personality types. I’m an INFP on the Myers-Briggs and an Enneagram Type 6.
