Ekstrom persisted in writing stories that resonated with her and eventually found an audience that appreciated her unique voice. Her decision to independently publish through Whyte Rose and Violet, Scribes, was catalyzed by a desire for creative control and fair compensation for her work.

She now undertakes ministry in person and online as necessary.

Rev. Dn. Ekstrom attributes her success to her academic foundation. In 2002, she earned a Bachelor of Theological Studies with a concentration in Christian Mythos and a subspeciality in Christian Ethics from the Episcopal School for Deacons. This education has underpinned her serious approach to both her craft and historical studies. In addition to her degree, Rev. Dn. Ekstrom became an ordained deacon in the Episcopal Church in 2002.
