I’m an experienced business, finance and health and wellness writer and editor who tells the stories of the people and companies that are changing our world for the better. 

I got my start at The Wall Street Journal, where I reported on global financial markets during the height of the credit crisis. I've covered breaking financial news, interviewed top executives, government officials and celebrities, and have appeared as an expert commentator on WSJ Video and Fox Business. From there, I took a role in marketing and communications at JPMorgan Chase, working with senior leaders to develop content and messaging. 

Now, I use my skills as a reporter and my marketing know-how to help companies better reach and inspire their clients. I get a thrill from "translating" complicated ideas and concepts into simple and fun-to-read copy that inspires, entertains and moves people to take action. I never miss a deadline, put sources at ease and am a fountain of fresh ideas. Clients see me as part of their team. I also continue to flex my journalistic muscles, contributing to top publications.

I've written for publications and clients including The Wall Street JournalBarron’sNewsday, MarketWatchthe Christian Science Monitor, the Houston Business Journal, Wellesley magazine, Rice MagazineRice Business Wisdom, J.P. MorganKeller WilliamsHewlett Packard, the Greater New York YMCA, WebMD, The New York Times T Brand Studio, the American Heart Association, Marcus By Goldman Sachs, GT’s Kombucha, , HeadspaceJourney Meditation, InvestopediaThe Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center, Dana Consulting and Medical Inflatables

I'm the co-president of the Texas chapter of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA), a board member and literary chair of Women in the Visual and Literary Arts, a member of the Historical Novel Society and the Writers' League of Texas, and I am fluent in Spanish. I have a Master of Arts degree in Journalism and Latin American Studies from New York University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and Psychology from Wellesley College. I have taught freelance writing workshops at Inprint, Houston's premier nonprofit literary arts organization.

In my spare time, you might find me on the yoga mat, learning to make kombucha or seeing a new foreign film. I'm also hard at work on my first novel, based on the true story of how my great grandparents helped a group of European refugees escape the Holocaust. 

A few career highlights thus far have included:

  • having an article on Page One of The Wall Street Journal

  • interviewing, and shaking hands with, Patrick Swayze

  • cornering Alan Greenspan in an elevator to ask him about interest rates

  • interviewing my grandmother for a story about New York’s Gertz Department Store

  • editing, and writing part of a book that helps solve the nursing shortage

  • being a finalist in historical fiction in the Writers' League of Texas' 2018 manuscript contest
