I’m a writer, covering issues related to parenting, immigrant identity and work-life (im)balance. I got my start teaching college composition and ESL, as well as writing and editing for several news organizations, winning awards from the New York Press Association and The Pentagon. During the day, I help others craft their own stories.


Currently I'm working on a nonfiction book, Parenting with an Accent, to be published by Beacon Press, and am represented by the Robin Straus Literary Agency.


My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, SheKnows, The Moscow Times, Quartz, Dow Jones Newswires, Scary Mommy, Kveller, Volume 1 Brooklyn and others. I hold graduate degrees in Comparative Literature and in Communications.
