WHO AM I?

I’m Lola.

I’m a writer who focuses on mental health, social justice, and empowering the soul/self. I studied Psychology at Humboldt State University, where I started writing passionately about women’s issues. You will find the bulk of my self-dubbed “angry feminist” work hidden away in journals, awaiting publishing. However, you’ll find my inclusive and empowering published technical writing in training materials, workshop outlines, and how-to guides at HSU’s Housing + Dining department, the Boys & Girls Club of Venice, and WSS. When I am not busy writing my angry feminist manifesto, I read books, watch sci-fi TV, hang with my fur kids, and manage my online bookshop.
