Telling important stories and inspiring people — that’s what I think is important.


I’m a senior reporter at Business Insider covering inequality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and leadership.

My last role was at NBC’s, where I wrote and edited breaking news and lifestyle stories. Previously, I was a reporter for CNBC, where as the first reporter for the new section “Make It,” I helped expand the site’s coverage on career advice and entrepreneurship news. Before that, I covered business, the economy and global politics for CNBC.

My work has appeared in The International Business Times, The Daily Beast, The New York Daily News and others.


I hold a Master of Arts degree from the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism, where I was a McGraw Business Journalism Fellow. My graduate work earned me and my team a Television Academy student Emmy nomination (Television Academy Foundation).

For undergrad, I graduated summa cum laude from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology.

Personally, I’m very passionate about mental health awareness and breaking the stigma surrounding substance abuse disorder.

I’ve started an Instagram platform called Strong Kind Self that gives followers content that combats negative stereotypes and offers positive life advice.
