IMG_4467-EditI live in Connecticut with my husband and two children. For eight years, I taught high school English and I’m currently working on a book about the importance of care (the noun and the verb) in a world that doesn’t always recognize its value.

Some of my essays have appeared in Guernica, The RumpusThe Millions, n+1, Electric Literature, Carve, The American Scholar and the Ploughshares Blog. I’ve also written some pieces about long-distance running and teaching (my other fascinations) for JSTOR Daily, The Washington PostReal Simple, Women’s Running and ESPNW.  

I teach at the Westport Writers’ Workshop.
