Her novel, FORWARD, was published in 2014 and an earlier selection of poems, ode to fragile, appeared in 2010. She has received the Amy Award, given by Poets & Writers to promising women poets under the age of 30 living on Long Island and Metropolitan New York City where she was at the time attending graduate school, & the Transit of the Aim Prize, given by Unsaid Magazine to the poet published there "whose work both embraces and conveys the maxim of poem 1109 by Emily Dickinson."
