As a writer and science journalist, I am passionate about aging and how it is communicated through the media. I have written for major publications like Salon and Inverse, spanning various topics like technology, loneliness, brain health, and longevity disparities. I also am a healthcare contributor to PBS Next Avenue, Forbes, and Senior Living Foresight. My desire to reframe the discussion about aging and older adults led me to start Global Health Aging, an award-nominated resource and creative consultancy producing expert insights, research, and innovative solutions to longevity and healthy aging. I have an MPH in Community Health Science and Practice, Graduate Certificate in Gerontology, and BS in Bioinformatics with Research Honors.

My journey to science writing and journalism has taken me from the lab doing scientific research to organizations promoting healthy aging. I have created a scout report about cell phones and older adults for Wirecutter, published research on millennial caregivers for the Center for Healthcare Innovation, and authored a chapter in Uncharted: How Scientists Navigate Their Own Health, Research, and Experiences of Bias, an upcoming book under production with Columbia University Press. For my communication and advocacy efforts, I was named a TEDMED Research Scholar, Columbia University Age Boom Academy Fellow, and profiled in a cover story titled Female Science Communicators Spread The Word by Diversity in Action.

I have been invited as speaker at conferences and workshops like Western Science Center, Reclaiming STEM, and Fred Hutch during National Minority Health Month. I also serve as an advisor to award-winning humanKINDER that shines light on untold stories of human resilience, ideas, and solutions for systems change. Early in my career, I performed biomedical research in academia and healthcare, including National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates and the City of Hope Beckman Research Institute Bioinformatics Core. I have been elected to the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Honor Society and the New York Academy of Medicine because of my contributions to the field. Let’s connect to advance aging narratives!

I provided manuscript editing services and proofreading for the Recipes of HOPE.
