About Me

NYC writer. Editor. Adjunct professor. West Village local. Avid traveler. Music, art, dance lover. Lit nerd. Currently living the freelance life while tackling the most rewarding role yet — mom (aka. the most wonderful and amazing descriptor I’ve ever … or will ever … have).

I graduated as an English major from Cornell and received my masters in journalism from New York University. As a print magazine veteran, I now spend much of my professional time writing and editing in the online world. Check out some of my more recent clips … on everything from parenting, pop culture, and politics to wellness and health (in both kids and their grown-ups).
