Hello! I am enrolled member of the Yuma Nation and Laguna Pueblo married to a delightful man from Milan, Italy. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Iowa (2013) and I currently teach CNF at Webster University in St Louis, as well as Washington University’s Summer Writing Institute. I will be reading poetic interludes for the Chaco Symphony featuring R. Carlos Nakai (for the second time) in April 2018. I am a board member with the Missouri Humanities Council working on literacy statewide. In my spare time, I help rehab properties in the City of St. Louis! You can find my published stories at The Rumpus, Salon, Prairie Schooner, Best Travel Writing, and Brevity, as well as here now that I have this website going! Please click around and stay a while or fly over to your Twitter Page and start a conversation with me!
