Where food, poetry, and stories steep like a good cup of tea.

I'm a writer in search of a good story and a good meal.

Ultimately, my decade-long background in the social sector (including grantmaking, fundraising, program management, content development, and social media marketing) is about storytelling, and helping people engage with causes and organizations in a meaningful way.

Eat This Poem launched in January 2012 as a way to fuse two of my passions, food and writing. I hope you'll stay a while (preferably with a hot mug of tea or coffee in hand) as we explore how poetry moves from page to plate, and inspires our palates along the way.

I received an MFA in creative writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and studied literature and art history at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 2011, I founded The Giving Table, a website that empowers everyone to change the food system.

I'm a regular contributor for Life & Thyme  Magazine,  and my work has been featured in Positive Writer, Christian Science Monitor, and numerous guest posts.

I am currently eating my way through Los Angeles, where I live with my husband and French bulldog.
