About Me

I’m a freelance writer/editor/content creator who has experience breaking down nuanced fitness research, conducting celeb interviews, writing truly helpful service journalism, creating compelling video packages, and more.

I was previously at TIME, where I launched and oversaw Motto, the brand’s vertical for millennial women. I’ve also worked as deputy editor at WomensHealthMag.com (and at Food Network Magazine and Cosmopolitan before that).

I graduated from the University of North Carolina with a major in journalism and a minor in creative writing. I love baking, running, and volunteering with Girl Scout junior troop 4557 (let me know if you are searching for cookies!).
