Verified identity

Overview

I am a highly sensitive introvert who believes in the power of vulnerability to foster connection and belonging.  Sharing stories is how we connect with each other; it's how we find growth and healing. My love for reading and language learning has led me to a career in editing where I am able to help writers share their stories. I am dedicated to increasing diversity and accessibility to publishing--the voices of people of color, members of the LGBTQIA community, and the disability community must be uplifted.
