About Me

I spent the first eight years of my career working as an editor at magazines like Good Housekeeping, Fitness, and Shape. I loved my job, but was feeling ready to leave New York and my 180-square-foot studio. Having seen enough friends make the transition to freelance writing, I decided to give it a shot and see where it took me. That was six and a half years ago.

Since switching to the freelance side of things (and moving to Chicago!), I've been able to write for dream publications and explore different kinds of content creation. I've had work published in Real Simple, O, The Oprah Magazine, Dr. Oz The Good Life, Self, Shape, Fitness, Redbook, Health, Whole Living, Better Homes & Gardens, Psychology Today, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Chicago, Good Housekeeping, and more. I also manage two corporate blogs for a major health insurance company, create content for Fortune 500 companies, and write blogs for well-known lifestyle brands. I mostly focus on health and wellness, but also write about finances, relationships, travel, entrepreneurship, and more.
