I write about workplace trends, real estate and finance, as a journalist and freelance writer. I have a background in print and digital and genuinely enjoy talking with people. My work is published in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Boston Globe, Providence Business News, Massachusetts General Hospital and Patch/AOL, among others. Love old houses, dogs and birds.
