I’m currently writing Girl Warriors, a book for young readers about 25 climate activists under age 25. It’s due out with Chicago Review Press in 2021.

Writing is my activism. It’s how I show up. It’s how I direct my anxiety and my anger. It’s how I find answers and connection.


I write about girls and women who are reversing the climate crisis. I became a reporter when I was 21 and moved to the Czech Republic to write for The Prague Post. I’ve written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, Salon, Ravishly, BabyCenter, Yahoo, and more.


My feature for The Washington Post about these teen activists hustling to save the planet — and the moms who make their work possible is what inspired my current book. I often write from the intersection of a parent and a journalist. Solo moms are my heroes. I was one for a decade.
