I'm a freelance editor and writer. Creatively, topics in pop culture, the celebrity ecosystem, and their intersection with “real life” interest me most. My work has appeared in HelloGiggles, Westwind (UCLA literary journal), House Digest, Nicki Swift, The List, Star Trek, Shondaland, Flare, The Advocate (Louisiana’s largest newspaper), OT Practice, Quiet Mountain: New Feminist Essays, and Mused, the BellaOnline Literary Review. I'm also the author of the 2014 novel New York Dolls (published by 48fourteen Publishing), inspired by my time interning at US Weekly in New York.
As an editor, I provide an extensive range of copyediting, proofreading, content editing, and writing services to a wide variety of clients located around the United States and abroad. From fiction and nonfiction manuscripts to academic pieces, my red pen is always ready to get to work.
A native of south Louisiana, I received my master of arts degree in creative writing and media criticism from New York University in 2008. My thesis, Searching for Identity within Community: Sex and the City’s Jumbled Narrative, was part creative/part research-based. I earned my bachelor of arts degree in English from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge in 2004, with minors in history and mass communication. My favorite course was my last as an undergrad, English 4001: Writing Essays & Reviews.
