I am a Chicago-based freelance writer with a particular interest in mental health and anxiety. I primarily write longform magazine articles, essays and profiles, and I'm the former features editor of SUCCESS Magazine.


My work has been published in The Washington Post, New York Magazine's The Cut, VICE, Glamour, SUCCESS Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Business Insider, Healthline and Inc., among other publications. I have profiled everyone from Dr. Oz and Kathy Ireland to Sophia Amoruso and Jennifer Hyman. 


I received my master’s degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University and my bachelor's degree from New York University. 


When I'm not writing, I can usually be found drinking matcha tea into excess, traveling somewhere new with my husband or surfing Etsy late into the night.
