I've been a journalist since the early 1990s, starting my career as a metro newspaper reporter at several dailies, including the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. These days I primarily write for magazines and online publications about health and business, although I stray into related areas—science, psychology and human-interest stories.

My articles have been published in more than three dozen publications and counting: consumer health, business trades and national health news services. Some of my recent favorites: the science of lightning survivors and their injuries, the launch of a national sepsis prevention effort, the role of community paramedicine with hospice patients, the do-nothing dilemma for cancer patients and a profile of a hard-charging pediatric surgeon who won't permit spina bifida to slow her down. 

I grew up on the East Coast, where I studied political science at Wellesley College and later earned a master’s in journalism from American University. I’ve enjoyed numerous cross-country relocations since: South Texas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and a stint in Madrid on a journalism Fulbright.

I’m now settled in Fort Worth with my husband, high school son and two Yin and Yang cats. When I can steal some time away from work, I play tennis, swim laps and ideally make a break for the beach. Feel free to contact me.
