As a child, Keefer-McGee her time caring for younger siblings and dealing with the fallout from her veteran father’s PTSD. From an early age, she mined myth, fairy tales, and her own imagination to make sense of the adult world. Today, Keefer-McGee’s work continues to examine how we layer cultural and personal meaning with lived experience, the natural world, and the stories to construct the self.
