I am a writer, independent researcher, and professional sick girl based in San Francisco. I discovered my passion for storytelling long before I could actually write, and have used stories and writing as a way to engage with the world and process experiences ever since. While earning my history degree I found that not only did I also love research, but I was excited by the potential power of research to contextualize stories for the purpose of education, social justice, and mobilization.
Currently, I write nonfiction about my personal experiences with chronic illness/disability, I do contracted work as a research assistant, and I create free, online resource guides on social and humanitarian issues such as immigration and health care.
