Mulberry Terrace began in 2015 as a writing portfolio and home of my main creative project, Letters from Mulberry Terrace. Since then, it has evolved into a hub for all my work, from copywriting to workflow consulting. You can learn more about any of my projects using the links above. Choose your adventure!
I’m a writer, editor, and eggs benny connoisseur currently based in Toronto, Ontario after spending most of my life in parts of Illinois so rural that I learned to drive with imaginary streetlights. Part of me will always be a country mouse (especially in autumn), but I’ve come to love city life and can’t imagine myself anywhere else.
I have a diverse range of skills thanks to my eclectic collection of education and experience: I hold a Master of Library Science degree from the University of Illinois, a BA in Political Philosophy from Northern Illinois University, and am a certified birth doula and prenatal educator. I’ve done work in a variety of fields including primary and secondary education, early literacy, university student affairs, non-profits, performing arts, health and wellness, marketing, and business.
I believe first and foremost in the tremendous value of community-done-well as a source of mental, physical, and social wellbeing. I work hard to know my neighbours and to be present with and accountable to the people living around me. These subjects feature heavily in my writing, and I’m always seeking opportunities to explore topics in my areas of focus.
In addition to my writing here at Mulberry Terrace, I’m a regular contributor on books and media at Genretastic, and I provide a number of services for creative professionals. For more on what I offer, click any of the links below.
