I love: breathing deeply, being surrounded by more beauty than I can handle, and questioning the status quo.

I am a writer, editor, and content strategist based in Oakland, California. My work has appeared in publications including: Women's Health, Vice,  Prevention, Men's Health, Life by Daily Burn, Self, University Business, The Huffington Post, CNN, The Daily Beast, and more. I also co-founded and served as editorial director of Chronicality, a publication designed to help young people live well in spite of chronic illness.

I hold a master's degree in health communication from Northwestern University and a bachelor's in journalism from Marist College. I also completed the visual design program at General Assembly in San Francisco in 2019. I’m fascinated by design and the way design and words interact to tell stories.

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, meditation, surfing, tending to my indoor plant jungle, exploring mindful uses of technology, and building community.
