Her passion for poetry sprouted from the visual arts, once she found solace in writing poems and stories. Her writing evolved into a career once she applied to be a writer for the Kentucky Foundation for Women and decided to pursue this practice as a full-time job. Her inspiration comes from her love for storytelling: "Sometimes writing is telling my own story through (other people), and sometimes, it’s telling their stories through my own."
co-editor of Circe’s Lament: An Anthology of Wild Women (2016)
co-editor of Black Bone: 25 Years of the Affrilachian Poets (2018)
