Helen (she/her/hers) was born and raised in Pennsylvania but now lives and writes in Colorado. She first joined Lighthouse as the Administrative Specialist in 2019. After taking a break from the mountain air to earn her MFA in Literary Arts from Brown University, she's returned to Colorado. She's thrilled to be back at Lighthouse, this time working in the Young Writers Program to grow opportunities for youth to connect with the joy of reading and writing. She lives with her wife, her cats Persephone and Calypso, and several dying houseplants.
