The Longer Story

Hello!

I’m a freelance journalist, content strategist, and author with a decade of experience creating high-quality health, wellness, and lifestyle content.

I grew up in sunny Florida, where I first fell in love with the great outdoors. After graduating from the University of Virginia with an honors degree in English, I fell into the ultimate cliché: I bought a one-way flight to New York City to begin my career in media.

My first roles were assistant positions at O, The Oprah Magazine and Woman’s Day, where I learned the ropes of the media industry. Then I discovered my passion for health and wellness. I worked at Shape as a digital editor and senior social media editor, and then served as a senior editor at Greatist for two years. In 2016, I was hired as the first social content strategist at WebMD.

To further my personal knowledge of health and wellness topics, I completed Emory University’s health coaching program and became an ACE-certified personal trainer in 2017.

Currently, I'm a freelance journalist contributing to national publications such as HuffPost, NBC News, Oprah Magazine, Women’s Health, Shape, SELF, MindBodyGreen, Thrive Global Greatist, Thrillist, and more. From protein powder and Pilates to positive psychology and personal essays, I cover health and wellness topics from a science-backed yet approachable and practical angle.

I also run the blog and digital content strategy for Dishing Park City, a food and restaurant publication. In addition, I regularly blog for Visit Park City and MyBinto, a personalized vitamins company for women.

When I'm not sharing expert advice or my deepest thoughts — and expert advice — on the internet, you'll find me in hot yoga, on a hike, reading a book, or relaxing with friends and a glass of wine.
