My work has appeared in The American Poetry Review, Rattle (Poets Respond), The Offing, Public Pool, Origins, The Heavy Feather Review and LIGO Magazine. I was selected as a Spring 2016 AWP Writer to Writer mentee and have attended workshops at Bread Loaf, Sewanee and Tin House. I have a background in Linguistics (MA from UCLA, BA from the University of Queensland) and I have taught at UCLA and the Montclair State University. Starting in 2017, I will serve as staff at the Sewanee Writer’s Conference.
I am currently working on a collection of poems centered on identity in motherhood and immigration, as well as a novel set in Brasilia, where I grew up as the daughter of migrants from Northeast Brazil.
