U of M’s influence:

“For me, the biggest influence the U of M has had on my professional life has been through the wonderful connections I made with various professors during my time there. They all taught me so many incredibly valuable lessons, lessons that I still use in my professional writing life today. I made so many wonderful friendships during my time there. I’m still close friends with two of my fellow Daily Helmsman editors, and talk to them on a daily basis.

Selecting the U of M:

“Simply put, there really was no other choice. I always knew from a very early age that I wanted to go to Memphis. From those days so long ago while watching Tiger basketball and going to The Pyramid to see them play in person, I always dreamed of the time when I could be a student at the U of M.”

Giving back to the Memphis community:

“One of my favorite ways to give back is by volunteering my time for literacy programs and also by volunteering for speaking engagements at creative writing workshops and publishing seminars. There are a lot of people who have a story to tell and I’m always happy to host a workshop or discussion group on the publishing process.”
