I graduated from Clark University (biology major), worked in the nonprofit sector while attending New England Law at night, clerked for a Land Court judge, and then did the attorney thing for a while (land use and zoning litigation). Eventually, I figured out I wasn’t a fan of going to court. Or maybe it was wearing suits. I needed a new plan. So now I write, mostly essays and short stories.
When I’m not writing, I’m usually reading. Or trying to make good in the world, whether it be in my backyard garden or by volunteering my time. For a few years, I blogged about motherhood. If you’re interested in reading a bit from my now defunct blog, little lodestar, click here.
I live in Quincy, Massachusetts, with my husband, daughter, and our Corgi, but I daydream about moving to Vermont.
