I embrace radical authenticity and curiosity to craft fresh and inclusive wellness content, free from the constraints of diet culture, acknowledging food as medicine, and seeing nature as central to wellbeing.
I draw from personal experiences with anxiety, depression, body image issues, and disordered eating to relate to a reader. By expressing my own vulnerability, I write with warmth and empathy, and together we find self-compassion and forgiveness.
My favorite topics include medicinal mushrooms, magnesium supplements, and eating to improve mental health.
I graduated from Wellesley College in 2019 with a degree in English and Creative Writing and am grateful for four years in such a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. At Wellesley, I found storytelling to be at the core of my academic and extracurricular endeavors.
As an English major, I regularly engaged in discussion of the essence of a twentieth century novel, its alignment in traditional storytelling patterns or resistance to a conventional portrayal of a life experience. In my studies of psychology, I explored our development of identity as individuals and the function of our stories, our collective stories, in directing that development. I found my greatest sense of peace and purpose in my creative writing workshops, surrounded by a community of writers, of individuals fully invested in language-based expression.
To portray situations, to describe landscapes, to tell our stories. These actions speak to the undeniable importance of storytelling in our culture. Wellesley shifted my interests in storytelling and writing from interests that motivated course choices into passions that I want to engage in daily.
