I am a freelance journalist based in St. Louis. After working as an assistant professor for several years, I decided to leave academia to pursue my passion of writing. It was through my academic research on girls’ education in Cambodia and India that I realized my love of 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, The Huffington Post, and the ONE Campaign Blog. My topics are wide-ranging, but my main interests focus on social issues, education, culture, and travel. I have interviewed and written about refugees, state politicians, broadway actresses, NFL players, fashion designers, teachers, architects, artists, and CEOs.
