I’m a former literary agent and have worked in the publishing industry since 2017 interning with publishers and literary agencies. I have a Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on Creative Writing and Education. As an agent, I edited and sold books to Beaming Books, Simon&Schuster, and HarperCollins. I love seeing a book come to life on the page and helping writers pursue their dream of writing a children’s book!
