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

I’m a proud editor and writer for NBC’s Today.com. I write and edit health, wellness and lifestyle stories and work with the broadcast team on social media and other duties.

Previously, I was a reporter for CNBC’s new section Make It, where as the site’s first reporter, I helped expand the site’s coverage on career advice and entrepreneurship news. 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 College Emmy Award nomination.

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 inspiring others, especially young women and young men.

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