I started out with a BA Honours in Psychology, working with youth facing emotional, mental health, and life struggles who lived in group homes, and then I moved to working with youth in a secure detention centre. From there, I joined a community rehab team for adults with acquired brain injuries for 5 years, followed by my dreams of pursuing writing and moving my life to the East Coast. This was the beginning of a pursuit of who I was, as a writer, believer, and seeker of my voice, story, and well being, and to connect with those who have felt unloved and abandoned.
After taking part-time writing courses at York University and Trent University, I took the leap and moved out to the East Coast, to the University of New Brunswick, where I completed my MA in English Lit and Creative Writing. My poems have been published in several Canadian literary magazines. I have a published Chapbook and I am currently editing my first manuscript, and working on my second. While I work as a Librarian in Ontario, I continue to advocate for and support those struggling with mental illness, poverty, addiction, trauma and more.
