I am a writer, facilitator, presenter, and coach based in Rutland, Vermont. Holding a MA in Transformative Language Arts from Goddard College and trained through the Center for Journal Therapy, I offer expressive writing workshops and private coaching for creative flow and personal insight. I write a regular column for the Rutland Reader and have essays published in Mama Says, Rutland Magazine, and Chrysalis, Journal of Transformative Language Arts. My first book, Lilian Baker Carlisle: Vermont Historian, Burlington Treasure; A Scrapbook Memoir was published in June 2017. I am currently continuing work on my memoir which I began in graduate school.

As part of my Masters degree in Transformative Language Arts from Goddard College, I wrote a thesis on the connection between expressive writing and the symbol of “mother” in the search for authentic voice and a new (feminine) spirituality. For the creative portion of the degree I began writing a memoir titled Sing from the Womb: Leaving Fundamentalism in Search of Voice. I also designed a curriculum called Voice Quest: A Spiritual Journey, which she has been facilitating since 2012.
