She lives on the unceded, traditional, and ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh nations. Her poetry recently received second place in CV2's Foster Poetry Prize and is forthcoming in Prairie Fire. In her spare time, she makes jam and poor decisions.

She has been published in literary journals such as Existere, Prairie Fire, and Contemporary Verse 2. Her first chapbook, Public Transit, was published in 2015 by Leaf Press, and her second chapbook, intertidal: poems from the littoral zone, is the 2022 winner of the Raven Chapbook competition.
