Experience

Whitney studied English in college at the University of Colorado at Boulder. While she began her career in education, she eventually pivoted toward her lifelong dream of writing. Currently, she freelances in a variety of spaces including personal writing, education, weddings, and parenting, while also working as a Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist.

Her background in education and work with people with disabilities has shaped her desire to write pieces that highlight accessibility and equity and has also instilled the important role writing and reading play in our self-development and understanding of others. Likewise, her experiences as a yoga teacher has informed her desire to make health and fitness inviting and accessible to all people.
