She grew up in Portland, Oregon and earned an undergraduate degree at Colby College, where she studied with the poet Ira Sadoff. She earned her M.F.A. from the University of Arizona. Her mentors there included Richard Shelton, Allison Hawthorn Deming, and Steve Orlen. She won a graduate fellowship while there and began her teaching career at Pima Community College in West Tucson.
