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 do enjoy straying into related areas—science, psychology and human-interest stories.

My articles have been published in more than three dozen magazines and counting: inflights, consumer health, parenting, business trades and teen publications.  Some of my favorites: fetal surgery to repair dangerously tangled blood vessels, the state of Massachusetts health reform five years after its launch, the spiraling methamphetamine outbreak in Washington State and the ongoing debate over public single-sex education. I’ve also authored a book, “Raising a Child with Arthritis.”

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, middle school son and two Yin and Yang cats.

I work out of a retail-office building, one that caters to small businesses, in a revitalizing historic neighborhood. 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.
