300,000 Steps for Strollers

I took more than 300,000 steps and let a fleet of strollers annex my guest room for months so you would know the best stroller for your family right now.

Hi, I’m Emily.

I’m a Minnesota-based freelance writer and hold a master’s degree in psychology. My service journalism and personal 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 children and long walks without them.


I’d love to connect with you. No spam, I promise! Just one email monthly, arriving on the last Thursday. You can expect to see my latest writing and a list of books I think you’ll want to read.
