Where to begin?

She's realistically been writing since she was old enough to touch a typewriter, but as far as on a professional competency level, this became a career in about 2008.
She'll break it down for you in a short (chronological!) list:
- Advanced Placement/Honors/Dual Enrollment English placement since age 14
- 4 years on staff (as both Features Editor and then Editor in Chief) of her high school newspaper, serving a student body of nearly 4,500 students
- 7-time Gold Standard award winner in student journalism from the PSPA (PA School Press Association)
- Student Board Liason for the PA School Press Association (chosen out of every school district within the commonwealth)
- PA School Press Association Student Board Member
- $1200 Jason Goldenberg Memorial Creative Writing Scholarship Winner (2012)
- NPR 3-Minute-Fiction Finalist
- East Stroudsburg University "Comic-Thon" 2012 Winner
- Two time journalism scholarship award winner (Luzerne County Community College, 2015/16)
- Outstanding honors graduate (Journalism & Communications Program, 2016)

She also currently works for a mid-level news publication as a correspondent and columnist for the past year, specializing in feature stories and arts & entertainment pieces.
Her column, in an arts and entertainment weekly, is known as the "Ink Spot," focusing on tattoo artistry and culture in and around the Northeastern PA region.
