I'm a writer, editor, mama and yoga teacher passionate about self-growth, parenthood, wellness, travel and relationships.

After nixing plans to pursue a law degree, I took my storytelling skills from a small town to Chicago, where I worked for a large urban church and got a master's in literature. I lead healthcare content strategy by day and tackle freelance projects by night. My work has been published by SELF.com, Buzzfeed, The Everygirl, The Everymom, Forbes, Aaptiv, Lifehacker, BRIDES, Work + Money, Mother.ly, Thought Catalog and more.

I have two books out this year, both published by Adams Media/Simon & Schuster: Get Your Life Together(ish): A No-Pressure Guide for Real-Life Self-Growth (April 9) and Self-Care for College Students: From Orientation to Graduation, 150+ Easy Ways to Stay Happy, Healthy, and Stress-Free (July 30)

When I'm not jotting down ideas, I loves to Netflix and chill with my husband, two kids and pug. I spend much of my free time opening too many browser tabs, practicing yoga, supporting my community, drinking cold brew coffee, curating the perfect playlist, asking questions, visiting friends in new cities and cooking any recipe under thirty minutes.

I believe in balance over busy, love over limits, people over things and intention over outcome.

Thanks for stopping by my small piece of the web, and hello.
