You can find my bylines in popular digital publications, including Everyday Health, Health, The New York Times, Parents, Romper, Verywell Mind, WIRED, and more.

Previously, I researched PTSD for the Department of Veterans Affairs and earned a master’s degree in psychology.

I believe in sharing what we learn. I love bringing science-based insights and expert advice to the public through writing.
