A life-long storyteller and advocate for social justice issues.
Before joining PRI as the Election Engagement Producer for The UnConvention, I was the Senior Editor at Women’s Health, where I produced editorial and video features related to women’s rights, gender equality, sexuality, and relationships. I also created, produced, and hosted the podcast, Uninterrupted, where I interviewed a broad range of fascinating women, such as Gloria Steinem, Padma Lakshmi, Chirlane McCray, Arianna Huffington, and Ivanka Trump, just to name a few.
Prior to Women’s Health, I was the Issues Editor at MTV News, as well as the Managing Editor of MTV Act. Under my management, MTV's social justice vertical received an honorary award for Best Youth Website at the 2014 Webby’s. Before MTV, I freelanced for outlets such as Hello Giggles, XO Jane, and Conversion Planet, as well as various advertising agencies.
I received my undergraduate degree from Hofstra University in 2006, and a Masters In Media Studies from the New School in 2011. I’m living, working, and raising two cats and a dog in Brooklyn, New York.
