Crisis Point: The pandemic made employers care about mental health. Will it last?
I am an award-winning journalist and editor who oversees editorial coverage of digestive health, heart health, traumatic brain injuries, and substance abuse at Everyday Health. Before that I worked on the health and science desk at CBSNews.com where I reported on topics such as the link between an algae bloom toxin and Alzheimer's disease and how to boost a baby's "good bacteria" after a c-section birth. My writing has appeared in Discover, Scientific American, Crain's Chicago Business, Audubon Magazine, TheWeek.com, Newsweek, and Popular Science. I have also worked in audio for a number of science podcasts and hosted my own audio show on the history of fairy tales.
I am passionate about creating content that sheds light on invisible illnesses and exposes gaps in care. I have a master's degree from the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY and an undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago. In my spare time, I like to garden, read, bike, and perform improv in Chicago, where I live with my husband, two daughters, and two cats, Siegfried and Zelda.
