Poetry | TAIR 2021-22

I am originally from Chicago, IL. Attended school at Denison University where I double majored in dance and English with a concentration in Creative Writing and poetry. I taught in the classroom for five years. I am excited to see how I can transfer the knowledge I gained in teaching in the room to teaching the craft of creative writing and poetry to others.
