Professional/Personal Overview
  As the go-to writer covering the exploding impact investing arena (aka green investing, sustainable investing, responsible investing, etc.), I've published dozens of articles on the space, have been invited to speak about its trends, and have advised impact investing conference organizers. In addition to that expertise, my skills and interests are varied, as evidenced by my regular work for Psychology Today, my years editing novels, books, articles, and corporate copy as a Senior Editor with DLA Editors & Proofers, my experience co-authoring a self-help book about toxic relationship patterns, and my role as a professor of journalism at Manhattanville College.
