I grew up in a small town in New York and fell in love with writing, language and culture at an early age. When I was seventeen, I enrolled at a lycée in southern France and lived abroad for the first time. This sparked my passion for immersive travel, which I've since pursued throughout western Europe and South America - always with a pen and journal close at hand.
After living in Manhattan for over a decade, I now reside on the Gulf Coast of Florida with my family. I’m a chief people & culture executive, a founding member of Fe League, a professional women's leadership organization, and a proud sponsor of Women for Women International since 2009.
