About Me

A long-time, award-winning journalist, I have contributed to outlets ranging from community news organizations to national and international channels, including Stanford Social Innovation Review, UU World, TheNation.com and Al Jazeera America, among others. 

Though broad in scope, my reporting has focused primarily on pressing issues such as identity, religion, affordable housing and the environment.

From 2008 until 2015, I lived in Delft, the Netherlands, where I learned to speak Dutch, how to bike through hail and how best to dip french fries in mayonnaise (sparingly, sparingly). My work there included writing, editing and translating for an English-language politics and lifestyle magazine, The International Correspondent.

Today, I live near Boston in Arlington, Massachusetts, in a tiny-ish house set upon a rock with my husband and our dogs Charlotte and Chester. When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, cooking, running, hiking, and visiting my two college-aged children.
