I grew up in New Jersey, close to the city and the beach. The Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco practically raised me, as I attended their Catholic schools from age 4 until I graduated high school. I have been keeping a journal since before I knew how to write (I filled a pink notebook with scribbles because I was determined to tell stories) and have continued writing ever since.
Faith is my cornerstone, and writing is my passion, and the two can blend in really interesting ways. As a peer leader in my high school youth group, my writing shone best in my witness talks for our retreats. I was also blessed with the opportunity to write for Saint Mary’s Press to create content for the fourth edition of the Catholic Youth Bible. I now work as a writing intern for Rehumanize International to help spread the pro-life message. When I’m not writing, I spend my time knitting, quilting, or cuddling my beloved guinea pig, Audrey.
I am always seeking ways to develop my faith and my writing abilities. Vermont has become my new home, where I am studying professional writing and expanding my portfolio. I also stay in touch with my roots by helping to plan events for my home parish’s young adult group.
