Accessible. Engaging. Informative.

I’ve written for large newsstand magazines and small, specialty publications, as well as some of the most popular health Web sites in the country. No matter the size of the audience, I bring the same commitment to story and accuracy. My editors praise my ability to connect with the people I interview, whether it’s a mother who’s recently lost her daughter to bulimia, a famous actress sharing her story of depression, or a group of men and women facing down the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. 
Over the past ten years, I’ve written about eating disorders and diabetes, cancer and heart disease, infertility and arthritis, transplant surgery and thyroid disorders. I’ve also put myself on the page, chronicling my own battle with breast cancer for Redbook. My writing is all about reaching readers and making a difference in their lives.  
I write a a monthly health column for the Washington Diplomat, a newspaper for the international affairs community, and have also written a regular fitness column for WebMD the Magazine, “Fitness Matters.”
Some pieces I’m particularly proud of include:
