Portraits by my very talented friend Alexa Wright.
Once upon a time, I wanted to be a marine biologist and study sea turtles. But somewhere along that journey, I fell madly in love with the ways in which words impact humans. I wrote my first "book" when I was just six years old and still have the original manuscript. "The Dog That Couldn't Do Tricks" is an uplifting story of, you guessed it, a dog that couldn't do tricks. Don't worry, there's a happy ending. Ask me about it.
Stories create connections and inspire imaginations. My hybrid editorial-journalism-advertising-marketing background makes me a super well-rounded storyteller and writer. Right now, I'm based in the SF Bay area and the Content Strategist at Mahana Therapeutics. I'm also a part-time freelancer. Hustle hustle! When I'm not writing all of the content, you can find me hanging out with my rescue pup Charlie, hiking, traveling (#jetsetjana), exploring the Bay Area or volunteering my time as a trained Crisis Text Line crisis counselor.
But, let's be honest. I'm almost always writing.
