She has an MFA from San Jose State University where she was fortunate in meeting and taking classes with Ishmael Reed, Naomi Shehab Nye, Jane Hershfield (through the Montalvo seminars), Sam Mao, and Alan Soldofsky. She has studied with Ellen Bass and Molly Fisk (poetry bootcamp). Through the MFA she published her first collection “Not Far from the Tree” and while there published individual poems in Convergence, Coe Review, Sanskrit, and Schuylkill Valley Journal.
