ABOUT ME

Storytelling is all I've ever known. At age 4, before I learned to read, I'd make up my own version of Jeff Brumbeau's The Quiltmaker's Gift each time I'd flip through its pages.

 

I'm currently a staff writer for Wondermind, co-founded by Selena Gomez, Mandy Teefey, and Daniella Pierson. I focus on the wonderfully complex world of mental health for the brand's website that launched in October of 2022. I've written about disordered eating vs. eating disorderstrauma dumpingdeath anxiety, and so much more.


Before Wondermind, I was an assistant fitness editor at POPSUGAR for over three years, where I worked on some really impactful features, interviewed big names in the entertainment and sports space, and wrote inspiring health stories. I reviewed the latest technology in home workouts, reported on kickass influencers in health and wellness, tried Simone Biles' ab routine, and got personal about growing up as a gymnast. (My favorite time of year? The Olympics / Paralympics.)

 

Before POPSUGAR, I was a digital writer for Metro US, covering basically everything. And I formerly held two positions at Hearst Magazines: first as an editorial intern at WomansDay.com and CountryLiving.com, then as an editorial fellow for GoodHousekeeping.com and HouseBeautiful.com. Hearst Tower and I go WAY back.

 

I graduated from Ithaca College with a B.A. in writing (plus a feature writing concentration) and a minor in communication, management, and design. It's a mouthful, I know. I have a keen eye for detail, love crafting pop-off-the-page stories, and am a huge fan of the Oxford comma because...duh!

 

On this website, you'll find a compilation of my published work ranging from articles to creative writing. View some more of my clips below or select the "featured work" tab above for a full list of bylines!

WRITER.  JOURNALIST.  STORYTELLER.
