Bio

Faith moved to Duluth to attend UMD, while obtaining her first degree in Early Childhood Studies. After a few years in the field, she began to search for opportunities to teach art related activities to youth. She has found it to be rewarding to work with children from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, and create environments that nurture their creativity.

She re-entered college in 2015 as a Writing Major with an Art Minor, and after earning her degree from UW-Superior in May 2017, she was accepted into the English M.A. program with a Writing Studies focus at UMD. She writes poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, as well as academic writing, which tends to concentrate on the rhetoric surrounding environmental controversies and the rights of underrepresented groups. Her love of art has led her to write poetry and creative nonfiction that concerns the work of contemporary, local artists.
