Professional Experience

I’ve covered everything from botched plastic surgeries (cover: Jane Mag) to Motorola’s Chinese expansion in the 90’s (The Daily Herald), to the biggest parties, best party favors at the DNC (LA Times) to the exclusive interview with Joran Van der Sloot for ABC News’ Primetime Live, to how Congressional oversight influences technological innovation (PC World) to why you must try these 5 self-tanners (Las Vegas Review-Journal). I’ve freelanced for national newspapers, magazines and television shows. My reporting is marked by a well researched background, a wealth of contacts, a resourcefulness that delivers a deep understanding of the topic and an ease of style that appeals to readers. Areas of interest: - Advice pieces: family, marriage, dating, professional development, business deals & partnerships - Beauty - Nutrition/Diet/ Exercise - Working through difficult relationships/ handling hard conversations (I’m a Harvard Law School certified mediator) - Family travel pieces
