Academic Credentials

My academic background includes an M.S. in Journalism from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, an M.A. from the University of London, and B.A.s from Tufts University.

I studied science, health, and technology (along with criminal law and astronomy) as a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, joining 10 other journalists selected from the U.S. and abroad.

I also have taught journalism, writing, editing, and publishing as an adjunct professor and lecturer at Emerson College, Boston University, DePaul University, and Lake Forest College. I am represented by the Denise Shannon Literary Agency.


My Story

I am an award-winning journalist and published author committed to impactful storytelling and clear communication with my clients and readers. I work with individuals and organizations on nonfiction editing and manuscript critiques while contributing to magazines, newspapers and Web sites nationwide. I love working with writers to achieve and execute their vision, enhancing their craft and increasing the odds of publishing their works. 

I also co-authored “Three Wishes: A True Story of Good Friends, Crushing Heartbreak, and Astonishing Luck on Our Way to Love and Motherhood,” a triple nonfiction memoir published by Little, Brown & Co. in North America and in five other countries (U.K., France, Holland, Poland, Brazil). Film rights were optioned, and Oprah's O Magazine called it a "Tome of the Brave."

My freelance writing and editing work also includes press releases, digital content, marketing materials, and features for academic institutions, corporations, PR agencies, and nonprofits. I also am honored to be featured as a guest speaker at writing and publishing events.

I am looking forward to working with you!
