About

largerHi there! I’m the features and health reporter at DNAinfo New York, a neighborhood news site. As a native New Yorker, I write about all the things — Trump murals, rainbow bagels, pizza rats — that make New York City enthralling and exasperating.

My new column, “Your Good Health,” offers readers advice on staying well in this bustling metropolis and examines public health issues unique to our hometown.

Before coming to DNAinfo, I covered the media business at POLITICO New York. (Never again in my life will I enjoy as many free magazine subscriptions.)

My work has also appeared in Newsday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the Queens Chronicle.

At Yale University, I won the John Hersey Prize for her senior writing project, a reported account of a day in the life of a caregiver and her mother, who suffered from dementia. I still think and care deeply about what it means to live a good life as we age; that’s why I volunteer with Sunnyside Community Services’ Friendly Visitor program and with VNSNY’s Hospice and Palliative Care unit.

You can view my full resume as a PDF here, and you can connect with me on LinkedIn.

A writer has the duty to be good, not lousy; true, not false; lively, not dull; accurate, not full of error. He should tend to lift people up, not lower them down. Writers do not merely reflect and interpret life, they inform and shape life.”

– E.B. White
