She will graduate with an MFA in narrative nonfiction from the University of Georgia in August of 2024. She happily resides in Atlanta with her husband, Sanghoon, their children Jasper and Daisy, and two mischievous tuxedo cats. Untold stories – and her young children – have been known to keep her up at night.
