About Me: 

Storyteller. Adventure Lover. Dress-up Queen.

I grew up around my hometown newspaper and gleaned from my father a love of people, community and narrative journalism. That foundation fuels me today as I fuse my background in communications with my passion for social justice and community activism.

During college, I ventured to Central Mexico and interned at Mississippi's only alternative weekly newspaper. The Southern writer I lived with taught me a life philosophy called “Barefootin'." It means releasing your fears and getting your feet muddy –– being immersed in something deeper than yourself.

Activism, adventures and events make me tick, whether I'm writing about a civic group collecting bras for survivors of sex trafficking, planning a trip to visit my sister in Cape Town, South Africa, or organizing a book club for young women social entrepreneurs. I love building connections and community.

In the long run, I plan to pursue a career in Portland, Ore. that combines communications and women's empowerment. I dream of raising awareness about women's rights and enlivening my writing with international flair.

My Passions: 
Women's and reproductive rights, social justice, volunteerism, travel, reading, writing, art, biking, camping, dress-up clothes and pushing my comfort zone
My Challenges: 
Embracing courage and fearlessness, not worrying too much
My Vision for the Future: 
Ensuring and expanding women's reproductive choices worldwide. Embracing and celebrating women's stories and passions.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Journalism, women's and gender studies, social media, community building
My Languages: 
English, Spanish
