I worked for three years on the team for California State University, Stanislaus’s Penumbra, an art and literary journal. In my final year there, I worked exclusively as the editor-in-chief.


I have Bachelor of Arts degree in English from CSU Stanislaus. I received my certificate of completion from UC Berkeley Extension’s Professional Sequence in Editing program. I also completed the creative writing program with the Institute of Children’s Literature.  I currently work as a teacher at Huntington Learning Center in Turlock, California, pursuing freelance editing on the side.
