More About Me
Welcome! I’m a 2020 grad from the University of Virginia and a graduate student at the University of Oxford. I love all things books, grammar, and English. I’m happy to help you wherever you are in the writing process. Let’s talk words!
I love reading historical fiction, watching psychological thrillers, and writing screenplays. I’m looking forward to connecting with you!
