I got my start in writing as a journalist and a college instructor of composition, ESL and journalism. My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Moscow Times, Quartz, Dow Jones Newswires, Scary Mommy, Kveller and others, winning awards from the New York Press Association and The Pentagon. I hold graduate degrees in Comparative Literature and in Communications.


My nonfiction book about immigrant families, Parenting with an Accent: How Immigrants Honor Their Heritage, Navigate Setbacks, and Chart New Paths for their Children, will be published by Beacon Press on Nov. 2, 2021. I'm represented by the Robin Straus Literary Agency and probably eat too much borscht.
