I am a Philadelphia native interested in education, literacy and American literature. Last May I graduated from Swarthmore College with a degree in English Literature and Environmental Studies. In my free time I enjoy reading, gardening, hunting for fresh produce at my local farmers' market and exploring DC's many museums. I've worked at farmers' markets, in food justice nonprofits, at libraries and in a writing center. I moved to DC in September and am placed at the PEN/ Faulkner foundation.
