For nearly a decade I was on the editorial staff at Newsweek Magazine and The Daily Beast, where I was a staff writer covering gender, culture, and social justice. I have a B.A. from Barnard College and a Masters from the Journalism School at Columbia University.

Currently I'm a freelance writer and Downeast Magazine contributing editor. I'm based in Camden, Maine, where I was born and raised.
