Professional Experience

An experienced writer on topics ranging from parenting to travel to entertainment, I've visited the set of Harry Potter, written for The New York Times and interviewed everyone from Beyoncé to James Franco. As the former editor-in-chief of the tween magazine Twist, I am well-versed in pop culture and service topics. I've also written extensively on women's issues, health and pregnancy. My writing was featured in the anthology Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It: Life Journeys Inspired by the Bestselling Memoir.
