Professional Biography:
I have more than a decade of experience in nonprofit communications, including seven years at UC Berkeley, where I served as Principal Editor, Advancement Marketing Communications, University Development and Alumni Relations. My work included creating direct mail pieces for broad alumni audiences as well as case statements, annual reports, and other communications intended to strengthen Berkeley's relationships donors at all levels. I also had the pleasure of writing for The Promise of Berkeley, which provides a vibrant snapshot of Berkeley news for the university's extended network of alumni and friends.

While working at Berkeley, I began writing arts and culture previews and features for SF Weekly and other outlets.

Previously, I served as an executive assistant and program associate at Tides Foundation and Tides Center, wrote successful grants for nonprofits, taught creative writing to graduate students and incarcerated youth, curated a literary reading series, and wrote fiction of my own. I've published poetry in several journals, and have been a finalist in two national literary competitions.

In 2017, I decided to leave Berkeley in order to pursue freelance work and creative projects. I also completed The Advanced Studies Program at The Yoga Room, where I now offer a donation-based class on Thursday evenings.
