IMG_1114I am a freelance journalist based in St. Louis. After  years of working as an assistant professor, I decided to leave academia to pursue my passions of writing and traveling. It was through my academic research on girls’ education in Cambodia and India that I realized my love sharing people’s stories. I think stories have the potential to bring people together and eliminate the fear that is so pervasive in our world.

My stories and photos have appeared in St. Louis Magazine and The Huffington Post. My topics are wide-ranging, but my main interests focus on social issues and travel. I have interviewed and written about refugees, state politicians, broadway actresses, NFL players, fashion designers, teachers, and CEOs.
