I write because this is the most decisive time in human history to confront the climate crisis.

I was born in Berkeley, CA, and after moving and working around the world for a decade, I’m back home. I went to Reed College in Portland, OR, and then to The New School in NYC, where I got my B.A. in journalism.  I’ve taught English in Mexico, worked as a newsroom reporter, written textbooks, and freelanced as a developmental book editor. 

I’ve written for dozens of publications, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, Family CircleParents, and POPSUGAR.

I had my first daughter in NYC, and I was a solo mom for a decade until I met a sweet guy at a friend’s book launch. Today we’re the proud parents of two amazing daughters who inspire me and motivate me to make the world a better place. Solo moms are forever my heroes. 

I love what author Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give) said in an interview with The Washington Post on January 22, 2021:

“Young people have some of the most powerful voices in this country. You just have to start listening.”

Oh, I’m also a band geek who plays the alto sax.
