Please tell us a little more about your background.
I have a B.S. and an M.A. in English from Bradley University. I worked for 5 years in fundraising, first at a homeless shelter in Chicago and then at the American Red Cross.

Outside of work, I enjoy running ultra marathons, writing/performing poetry, camping, and traveling.
