Our story started on a 4 train in New York City..

She lives in Atlanta with her husband Lane.


nicole shepard

team glue

Nicole has an old soul, an obsession for stationery and a deep love for the written word. She earns her living as a graphic designer, but lives her life as an encourager and comedian. Team building and mentoring are her jam. Words of affirmation are literally her love language which gives her a deeply rooted passion for MLL. When she's not writing love letters, she's probably reading, singing show tunes or dreaming about New York City.


sara brink


Sara Brink is an avid writer, a voracious reader, and a serious cat lover. She helped design and implement the Campus Cursive program back in 2012 after graduating from Hofstra University. When she's not writing love letters, she's baking and decorating cookies and cakes. You can probably find her slugging coffee and dancing to Taylor Swift.




Katy loves planners, organization, and to-do lists with her whole heart. She graduated from Syracuse University in 2018 and spent most of her time there planning and organizing events for student orgs, which gave her the skills she needed to become the MLL community manager. Fast-forward to the present and she spends her day working in healthcare administration and the rest of her time running around the mountains of Vermont, reading, traveling, and hanging out with her cats, Calvin and Hobbes.


claire taylor 

spreadsheet guru + assistant to hb.

Claire has a heart for details and people; color-coded excel sheets and to-do lists bring her as much joy as coffee and a quality conversation with a good friend. When she isn't working at as a market research analyst, she is exploring Washington D.C., teaching fitness classes, and telling anyone who will listen about the enneagram. 




Jamie is a go-getter and an inspirer. This southern girl transplanted to Maine spends her days writing, reading, and creating content as a social media specialist. By night she is a dog mom to Wilmy and Arbour, a novice sewer, addicted to her email, and if you put a wooden spoon in her hand she'll kick you out of the kitchen and cook you dinner. On the weekends you might find her with her nose stuck in a book, enjoying an at-home workout, cuddling with her dogs, or eating great food with her husband.

laura backe

love letter bundle facilitator

Laura began writing letters at age 8 when her family moved 600+ miles from the mid-west to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina and continues to write letters today. By day, she can be found creating adventures all over town with children as a nanny. By night, she is MLL's bundle coordinator - knee deep in spreadsheets, emails, requests for love letters and stories of how letters have impacted lives.  


bella bonnano

love letter bundle facilitator

Bella is an encourager and story-teller. Black coffee, magnolias, and grace are her love languages. While her heart is rooted in the mountains of Oregon, Bella can also sometimes be found penning love letters in France and the Netherlands. She’s Laura’s sidekick, and spends many a night reading the heartrending and gutsy stories of human beings for MLL.




Sydney is passionate about the power of story and loves equipping and encouraging fellow writers to share their hearts through the written word. She makes her living as a volunteer coordinator and writer, and her typical work day is filled with community building, creating volunteer recruitment strategies, and writing articles for her local newspaper. You can most often find her with a book in her hands, talking about the value of personality tests, or in the kitchen concocting a new (most likely healthy) recipe. She lives in southern Indiana with her husband, Garrett, and their cat child, Pablo.


kat ambrose

social media manager

Kat has been passionate about writing since she can remember. Her childhood was spent dreaming up characters and the worlds they lived in. Her love of writing has carried her through many wonderful opportunities including becoming a contributor to an online women's magazine as well as her first job out of college. She dreams of becoming an author one day and is working on her first book. When she's not writing or working on awesome social media projects for More Love Letters, you can find her reading a true crime novel, exploring the great outdoors, plant shopping, or petting the nearest dog.
