Volunteer, Extra Curricular, and Leadership Rolls
Almost Home Adoptions
I volunteer every Saturday morning to assist a no-kill shelter with cleaning, organizing, and facilitating a comfortable and safe environment for animals and guests.
I’ve had editorial appear in several publications, including Pacific magazine, The San Diego Reader, and Escondido magazine.
Fundraiser and Events
While I was Managing Editor, I co-produced several large charity events, including fundraisers for Kids Korps USA and the Susan G. Coleman group Powered By Optimism.
For fun I enjoy hiking with my dog Leeloo, baking bread from scratch, and listing to true crime podcasts. I’ve been fortunate to live and work abroad; I’ve traveled throughout Europe, Southeast Asia, and across the U.S., which has broadened my worldview and benefited my writing.
