A native New Yorker and former actress, Ronit studied with Uta Hagen, Alfred Molina, and at Ensemble Studio Theatre in NYC before heading west to Los Angeles. After training and performing at Improv Olympic and working with Tim Robbins and the company at The Actors’ Gang, she began writing and performing her own work for the theatre. She enjoyed it so much that when she and her family moved to Seattle in 2005 she started writing fiction and nonfiction. She holds three University of Washington certificates in writing, is a One Story Workshop for Writers alum, and holds a Masters in Fine Arts in NonFiction from Pacific University (2017). She has been a guest lecturer at the university level, and currently teaches middle-school and elementary school students part-time. Her essays and short stories are available in print and online.
