Vice President, Publisher, and Editor-in-Chief
I am an Editorial Assistant at Little, Brown Spark, and Little, Brown and Company, where I work on a range of narrative and prescriptive nonfiction in categories including health, popular science, psychology, biography, politics and high concept/big think. I'm a recent graduate from the University of Minnesota where I majored in Business Marketing and Strategic Communications with a minor in design. I am a book lover and female advocate. I want everything I do in life to eventually lead to the greater benefit of women, and specifically Black women. Showcasing people's stories and experiences is very important to me; making me particularly drawn to books that center women, POC and LBGTQ+ individuals at the cross-section of current events, politics and unknown social movements meant to spark larger civic conversations.
I am the publicity lead for Voracious and Little, Brown Spark, focusing on the cooking, lifestyle, health/wellness, science, and psychology/self-help categories. I’ve spearheaded publicity campaigns for bestselling authors including Nicholas Christakis, Bobby Flay, Josh Axe, Mark Hyman, David Perlmutter, Jillian Michaels, and Deepak Chopra. At Little, Brown, I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside authors such as Christopher Kimball, Maida Heatter, Isaac Toups, Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, and David Tamarkin. Previously, I worked in publicity at Penguin Random House, Abrams, and Simon & Schuster. A graduate of Loyola University Maryland, I earned my BA with majors in Writing and Marketing.
