The Queen Bee

Okay, well I wouldn’t say queen per se, but here’s a little bit more about who I am…

I am the daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and sister to a family of thespians and artists…so creativity runs in our blood.  I was born and raised in various suburbs of Chicago and I absolutely love it here!  I have been surrounded by books for as long as I can remember and often dream about opening my own bookstore.

I graduated summa cum laude from Northern Michigan University in 2007 with a B.S. in English Literature.  I also double minored in public relations and Native American studies.  While I was in college, I worked for various publications, including the alumni magazine (Northern Horizons) and the local Native American newspaper, Anishinabe News, specializing in Native American arts and entertainment.  Outside of school, I served as the editor and writer for the Lakes Community High School fine arts newsletter, In Tempo, for three years.

Outside of work-related shenanigans, I spend my time watching LOST, browsing old creaky bookstores, and drinking coffee.  My CD rack is full of Frank Sinatra albums and I’ve read roughly five biographies on him.  I will willingly admit that I’ve read the entire Harry Potter series four times and I’m not looking to stop anytime soon.  If I could afford it, I’d go to the theater every weekend and I have a secret desire to play Mary Poppins on Broadway (I can spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious if that helps!).
