I write about women’s health, education, and a variety of issues pertaining to gender, race, class, and sexuality. I blog occasionally about writing, creativity, and wellness.

I’m based in Durham, North Carolina, but I was born in Ottawa, Canada, went to college in Montreal, got my first copywriting job in San Francisco, wrote for Citysearch in Seattle, and went to graduate school in Iowa City, Iowa.

I’m currently working on a series of essays about my diverse family.
