My poetry has been published in numerous journals and in two chapbooks. My work is informed by a sense of place, ecospirituality, memory, and loss.
I’m a former Poet Laureate in Berks County in southeastern Pennsylvania, and part of my commitment as a writer is to be a good literary citizen. So I currently serve as Board President for BerksBards, a local poetry nonprofit that hosts monthly poetry readings and open mics as well as other related projects. I’m also a member of several poetry critique groups via Zoom and Facebook, and I’m a reader for Common Ground Review. In 2020, I participated in Tupelo Press’s 30-30 Project, writing a poem a day for 30 days.
Walks in nature, yoga, collaging, contemplation, and writing bring me joy and healing. I’m a pesce-vegetarian. My deepest social passion is ecojustice.
In addition to having worked in marketing communications and nonprofit fundraising, I’m an ordained Unitarian Universalist Minister. I hold Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in English Lit, and Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry Degrees in Theology and Ministry.
I share a home with my partner, Christopher Keith, and my tortoiseshell cat, Belle.
