She trends toward writing stories of transformation, from Ironman competitors to drug addicts. A San Francisco Bay Area native, she moved across the country to study storytelling at KU's William Allen White School of Journalism. While in Kansas, she won the investigative Victor Murdock award for her reporting on a truck salvage yard tied up in civil battles and EPA violations. She now lives in Boulder.
