Out of Appalachia, into the world

McLean, VA.

Grew up in Eastern Kentucky in a county that is in the bottom 5% economically in the country. I have done social work in Appalachia, tutored students for SAT prep in VA, worked at the World Bank for 10 years, and am the author of To Come and Go Like Magic published by Knopf. I grew up in a tight-knit community and my “community” continues to expand.
