With levity, heart, and humor bitter as black coffee, The Modern Persephone is one woman’s quest to make sense of it all while just trying to be a goddess in this vast, uncaring, and occasionally miraculous world.

I’m not exactly a goddess– yet— but I am a writer, teacher, and activist from the frozen north of Michigan constantly working to become more proud of myself. I created this online magazine to bring just a little more light onto this starry rock, and perhaps help comfort or insight find its way to someone who really needs it.

Drop me a line anytime. My pantheon is always big enough for one more.
