I am a freelance writer, editor, and content creator based in the New York City area. I primarily cover women's health, fitness, wellness, running, nutrition, and dance. I am the former editor in chief of Dance Spirit magazine, the industry's leading publication for recreational, competitive, and preprofessional teen dancers, and am a regular contributor to Self, Shape, Women's Health, Well+Good, Allure, and Dance Magazine. I'm a six-time marathoner, 14-time half-marathoner, and lover of all things sweat-inducing. I'm also a proud rescue dog mom, a Crohn's disease thriver, and a crappy-but-trying-to-get-better "aficionado" in the kitchen.
