About Me

I cover gender and mental health as a senior features writer for Mashable. I previously reported on domestic military and veterans affairs as well as mental health. I’m particularly fascinated by stories of trauma and resiliency. I also like to report on science and technology as it relates to those subjects, but especially if new research tells us something surprising about how to understand the world.

I attended U.C. Berkeley’s School of Journalism. I was a Rosalynn Carter Mental Health Fellow for 2011 – 2012. Previous gigs include: staff reporter at NBC News Digital; special reports project director for The American Prospect; staff writer at Forbes, where I covered health and travel, but not at the same time. I also later hosted Military Medicine at Forbes.com, a blog about research and policies that affect soldiers and veterans.
