I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2013 with a degree in English Literature. In my senior year, I was the Social Media intern at 2060 Digital, where I wrote social media content and took photos for events. Upon graduation, I was hired full time as a Social Media Strategist, where I was responsible for the social media marketing of various companies nationwide.

In April 2014, I accepted the position of Associate Editor at Artists Magazine through F+W Media. I wrote and edited various columns and feature articles for the magazine, as well as updating the website and our social media platforms. I also helped judge our various competitions, including the Annual Art Competition with over 10,000 entries annually. 

I began freelancing in December 2017 for Soapbox Media, and in June 2018 I expanded my freelancing to the magazines Pastel Journal, Watercolor Artist and VMSD magazine. While freelancing, I also work at Blue Manatee Children's Bookstore and Press.
