Home: Welcome

Writer and editor based in Brooklyn, New York. I have a background in health psychology and psychiatry/psychology research methods and design; most of my writing centers around hot topics in psych. Currently, I am an editor at the medical network Doximity, where I lead a team of writing fellows for our narrative nonfiction vertical, Op-Med. I also do freelance editing for writers working in poetry and prose.
