From my first published article for Playbill theater magazine—about scoring free theater tickets by dressing up as a nerd—to my current work writing health and lifestyle features for magazines including Real Simple, Parents, Good Housekeeping, and Prevention, I’ve written for more than 40 consumer publications over the past few decades. My features have covered every possible stage of a woman’s life, from teen angst to senior caregiving, from careers to weddings to reproductive health. I’ve also written extensively about theater, nutrition, fitness, mental health, and relationships; I’ve picked up a few MIN and Folio awards along the way, and I’ve written a book: Deliver This! Make the Childbirth Choice That’s Right For You—No Matter What Anyone Else Thinks (Seal Press). There is still nothing I love more than the challenge of a new assignment and a blank page to fill.
