On the rooftop of the Maryland State House, on assignment. 

 

Hi! Thanks for stopping by.

I am a Washington D.C-based journalist, writer and commentator-of-sorts focused on health and gender. Currently, I'm the healthcare reporter for Governing Magazine, writing about all things health: public health, health policy and health disparities, just to name a few. 

I am also the host of the 23 Percent podcast, where I profile accomplished women in government. I write a weekly newsletter where I analyze headlines in the health and gender space--you can subscribe here.  

I'm originally from Little Rock, Arkansas and graduated from Little Rock Central High School, the site of forced desegregation during the civil rights movement. Growing up with that sort of historical backdrop, I questioned everything around me from a very early age. 

I hold a master's degree from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, where I focused on (you guessed it) public health reporting. My work has also been featured in National Geographic, The Atlantic and New York Magazine. I've covered topics ranging from trichotillomania to climate education in South Africa to domestic violence during the Holiday season. Have an idea or tip for me? Get in touch!

When I'm not out writing and interviewing, I love going to yoga and spin classes, eating Thai food and meandering DC's many bookstores.
