I'm a freelance writer, based in Vancouver. I cover health, wellness, and relationships. My work has been featured in American Kennel Club, SELF, Well+Good, Insider, Katie Couric Media, Apartment Therapy, Giddy, Byrdie, Bezzy Migraine, and more.
My explainers feature advice to help people give their dogs the best life possible. I turn to my dogs, Dally, Rusty, and Frankie for inspiration.
I became a therapist before specializing in public health for my Ph.D. I create mental health resources and content through my platform, Smart Girl Therapy, to inspire wellness and personal growth.
As a storyteller and lifelong fan of The Golden Girls, I aspire to be "Picture it, Sicily, 1920-something, but really I'm more "Back in St. Olaf."
