I am a Seattle-based health and science writer and a graduate student in the Johns Hopkins University science writing program. I'm a frequent contributor to USC's Center for Health Journalism where I also completed a health journalism fellowship.
Previously, I've been a staff writer at The Mercury News, The Recorder and The Bakersfield Californian, where my reporting won awards from The Associated Press, the California News Publishers Association and the Association of Health Care Journalists.
My freelance work has been published in GeekWire, The California Health Report, CNN Travel, The Economist's Business China, the China Economic Review, The Wall Street Journal, World Hum and Afar Magazine. Most recently, I was a section editor on the health disparities issue of The Science Writer.
