I’m a writer living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My poems have been in Water~Stone Review, Gigantic Sequins, Sugar House Review, and many others.

Small Like a Tooth—a chapbook of 20 poems exploring some darker sides of motherhood—was published in May 2015 by dancing girl press.

I’m also the founder and custodian of a free Little Poetry Library in my neighborhood.

I’ve been grateful for the support of a 2010-2011 Loft Mentor Series award; a 2010 Blacklock Nature Sanctuary fellowship; a 2014 McKnight Artist Fellowship; and Artist Initiative Grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board in 2013 and 2016.
