Graduate Teaching Assistant

Creative Writing

I am a second-year MFA candidate with a concentration in fiction. In undergrad, I studied at Hollins University and obtained a B.A. in English with a concentration in creative writing and a minor in communications and film. When I was a sophomore in undergrad, I studied abroad in London and had the opportunity to visit other countries while I was in Europe. My favorite part of traveling was getting to learn more about different cultures. During my time abroad, I interned with a publishing company and gained experience in various positions such as editing, revising, and creating content for the company's website. As a writer and teaching assistant, I  believe in the creative process and adhering to each student's individual goals. I strive to ensure that every student leaves the classroom feeling confident in their work. When I am writing or consulting, I spend time with my cat fur baby, Fernando.
