Hi, I’m Emily.

I’m a Minnesota-based freelance writer and hold a master’s degree in psychology. My helpful, science-backed journalism and essays about mental health, mindfulness, and motherhood have appeared in The New York Times, WIRED, Romper, Elemental, and elsewhere. When I’m not writing, I love baking with my three young children and long walks without them.


On the last Thursday of every month, you’ll get my latest writing, a curated reading list, and something delightful delivered straight to your inbox.
