Professional Experience

From cancer and infertility treatments to government-funded clinical trials conducted on HIV-positive foster kids, I've written extensively on women's and children's health issues for national publications. My portfolio is a rich mix of health, pop culture, and human-interest feature and spot news stories for such magazines as People, USA Weekend, and The Crisis. I contribute to Money Magazine and have been on assignment for Glamour. Other noteworthy mentions? I've chatted up "Sex and the City" author Candace Bushnell and spent a "girls" afternoon with Patti LaBelle discussing food, friends, and career. I am also a woman- and minority-owned small business registered with the U.S. Federal Government's Central Contractor Registration database. I have a DUNS number.
