Hi! I’m a freelance writer who’s been stringing words together for a variety of regional and national publications since 2015. I’ve been a generalist most of my writing career because it’s fun to learn about new things. But I get super geeked when I work on stories about power (or the lack thereof), women’s health, relationships, and weed.

Almost everything I know about journalism I learned from working with a bunch of smart people at an alternative newsweekly in Charlotte, North Carolina, called Creative Loafing (RIP). It was my first job out of college, and I wore many hats, including managing editor, nightlife photographer and social media editor. Eventually, I became editor in chief—it was the coolest job I ever had until it wasn’t anymore.

Other fun facts: I might be pen hoarder, I’ve nicknamed my home office plant “Bon Bon,” I identify as Korean American, and I long to return to city life. Alas, I currently live in suburban Georgia, though my wonderful husband, our curly-haired toddler girl and two small dogs keep things interesting.
