I am a Philadelphia-based journalist with a passion for mental health, wellness, and culture. When I'm not writing, I'm training for a marathon or riding horses. To read more of my writing or see photos of my dogs, follow me on Instagram or Twitter.
For those who don't believe anything is possible, know that I almost killed a succulent.
My words can be found in the New York Times, Washington Post, Self, Allure, Women’s Health, Health, and Marie Claire.
This year, I’ve written about the physiological effects of racism, implicit bias in medicine, and how parents can talk to their children about race.
I lead workshops on self-care for working women and racial sensitivity for corporations and schools. As a panelist, I frequently participate in discussions on mental health, activism, and workplace wellness.
