Passions & Projects

Just some of the things I’m involved in & passionate about!

Author Mentor Match

A program that matches agented/published authors with aspiring YA & MG writers for long-term mentorship


A non-profit I volunteer with in Los Angeles that pairs women writers with teen girls 13-18 for writing mentorship. I am also on the college team, which assists the senior girls in applying to college.


I mod /r/YAwriters, a fabulous sub-Reddit/community for both published and aspiring YA and MG writers.

Upvote YA Podcast

I’m a co-host of UpvoteYA, the official podcast of the YAwriters sub-Reddit.
