About me

 

I am a skilled reporter, writer, and editor with a primary focus on food, nutrition, and general health. My expertise is in telling stories that show how we produce, sell, buy and consume food impacts individual lives, global health, culture, and the environment. I've written about food companies hiring formerly incarcerated individuals for Civil Eats, whether big-box greenhouse farms support local food economies for Eater, and a snack food company's efforts to utilize whole animals in Tasting Table. I also have extensive experience writing and editing lifestyle stories on nutrition and fitness for women's health publications, like tips to keep vegetables fresh in Cosmopolitan and the healthiest fish for Furthermore. As a writer and editor at Well+Good for more than six years, I tried every workout and kale salad imaginable and interviewed the smartest nutritionists, personal trainers, health researchers, and doctors daily. There, I published stories like the healthiest protein bars, the hardest workouts in New York City, and facts about IUDs. I have a master's degree in Magazine Journalism from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and a bachelor's degree in Sociology from Northeastern University.
