Journalism

As a freelance journalist, I write service pieces that put complicated issues into plain, everyday language, and reported features that dive deep on important topics through storytelling.

My journalism tends to follow the issues I find most pressing. I often write about health—psychological, physical, and relational—as well as the environment, climate change, and the impact of humans in outdoor recreation. In 2020, I regularly contributed to SELF.com’s COVID-19 coverage, illuminating leading public health recommendations for readers as the crisis unfolded.

Below are highlights of my work.
