About the founder

Prior to my prison work, I had a 10-year career as a journalist – television. Creative writing is my passion especially “micro” flash fiction. I’ve served in leadership communications roles for several nonprofit organizations across the country and my story pitches have garnered national media attention in U.S. World & News Report, CNN, Miami Herald, The Washington Times, and more. With a B.A. in Political Science from California State University Northridge, my academic focus was on international politics and public law with an emphasis on journalism.

I’ve published in Common Hope blog, Spirit and Place Festival blog, and also featured in B-Metro Magazine.
