Where do we begin?
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English Writing from Illinois Wesleyan University in 2012, and while I went on to work at a concert venue, mortgage company, investment firm, and mechanical contractor, nothing could keep me from a keyboard and blank Google doc.
After creating an original column for a now-defunct music website (RIP Noisetrend), I wrote career profiles and a music column for The Everygirl and later produced lifestyle and entertainment content for websites like Gapyear.com, Elite Daily, and Literally, Darling.
In 2017, I saw my name in physical print for the first time in the debut issue of what was easily the prettiest publication ever, Whitespace Magazine. In addition to copy editing, I was the head writer for the follow-up issue, writing four of the five feature articles.
During a brief (but brilliant) move to Melbourne, Australia, I grew curious about learning to code. I completed Code Like a Girl's Foundations of Web Development course in early 2021. That same year, I joined the Brand Studio team at Built In as a staff writer, telling stories about tech companies and the people behind them.

Want to be my real-life friend?
We'll get there. You should know I'm a fiend for crosswords, I learned my way into becoming a Cubs fan, and I think I would crush it as a Below Deck stew or deckie. (A girl can dream!) As for thin crust pizza...
Want to be my Internet friend?
I'm on Twitter, Instagram, and Spotify. Your move.
Where do you make that move?
