I'm a Seattle-based health and wellness writer with a masters degree in journalism from Boston University.
I graduated from Bucknell University with my BA in Psychology in 2012 and earned my MS in Journalism from Boston University in December 2013. While at BU, I taught journalism and communications courses; managed the university's weekend-long narrative journalism conference; and assisted with edits on several book projects. After BU, I wrote about health for Boston magazine; ghostwrote a book about using emotional agility to effectively manage teams; and worked as the Managing Editor of MedTech Boston, a medical innovation website and start-up.
In 2015 I took an executive assistant job at Upworthy, where I helped the editorial director manage restructuring, hiring and logistics. I eventually switched to an editing role at Upworthy and launched the site's freelance program. Most recently I worked at the New York Times' product review website, Wirecutter, where I project managed, wrote and edited long form reviews of health, fitness, travel and outdoor gear. Now I'm a freelance writer and editor. I work with companies like the Seattle Times, Solutions Journalism Network, athenahealth, Northrop Grumman, the New England Journal of Medicine, 538 and others to create and polish quality content.
Why should you hire me? I'm hyper-organized and efficient, no matter what project I'm working on. I have deep experience with both long and short form editing. I love to teach writers and editors alike how to create content that will reach the most people possible. I'm a radically candid manager. Perhaps most importantly, I grew up in the digital age; I live and breathe online media.
When I'm not living on the Internet, I'm a yoga teacher. I also run my own food blog.
