I am a writer, activist, and storyteller.  I grew up splitting my time between an old Vermont farm house and our family owned rustic resort, Timberlock. I graduated from Wesleyan University in 2015, where I majored in Psychology and independently studied photography, design, and writing. I believe in creativity as an access point to healing, in kindness, in asking big questions, and in afternoon naps. My work in behavioral health & trauma has inspired me to incorporate art into the process of caregiving and therapy, as well as to work on reforming the way our culture looks at mental health and disability. Passionate about writing since a young age, I am now a contributing blogger for Huffington Post, and have been published places such as PANKBroadlyShapes We MakeGERM Magazine, and The EEEL. I am fueled by connection, community, and gratitude.
