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, editor, 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 collaborating with writers to achieve and execute their vision, enhancing their craft and increasing the odds of publishing their works. 

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

I look forward to working with you!
