I got my start in writing as a journalist and a college instructor of composition, journalism, and English as a Second Language. My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Moscow Times, Quartz, Parents, Scary Mommy and others, winning awards from the New York Press Association. I hold graduate degrees in Comparative Literature from City University of New York Graduate Center and in Communications from Georgetown University.

As a communications professional, I have developed and implemented communications strategies and written content for nonprofit organizations, mission-driven technology startups, and the government (U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force). 

My nonfiction book about immigrant families will be published by Beacon Press on Nov. 30, 2021. I'm represented by the Robin Straus Literary Agency.
