About Me


A 29-year-old life-long resident of Kansas City, Missouri, I've been married to my high school sweetheart since 2008. I work as a full-time caricature artist and volunteer in animal rescue in my spare time. I also happen to be a witch. I grew up in a Catholic-meets-Baptist household and truly enjoyed Sunday school, but neither religion seemed to click for me. When I was introduced to paganism and witchcraft in my preteens, the rest was history. I'm now an active member of the Kansas City pagan community, the Circle Coordinator for Circle of Fountains and the volunteer photographer for public community rituals. I'm a staff editor for The Center Spiral, in which I've been published multiple times, and have partnered with Sabbat Box, Blackthorn Hoodoo Blends, Cratejoy and more.


Witchy Words strives to be a resource on opinions about modern paganism and witchcraft.  Seeking transparency in all things, this blog offers a visual perspective on rituals, spell crafting, altars and more.   I photograph local rituals, post up spells I've created that have worked for me, and openly speak about my experiences as a nontheistic hedgewitch working with familiars while leading a non-denominational coven.  It is my firm belief that this openness is not only needed to combat stereotypes but to educate those new to the religion or Craft who don't have access to community.

As with all blogs, Witchy Words is first and foremost an opinion site.  Unlike a .edu or a .gov site, where resources are worked on by many people or specialists in the field, I'm just a single person on a journey.  I try my best to cover a wide range of topics in a general fashion but I can and will make errors.  Think of this blog as a catalyst for your own journey and research, inspiring you to dig deeper and see all the options that paganism, Wicca and witchcraft can bring!
