I’m a writer and health advocate based in both the Pacific Northwest and the Bay Area. I have an MPH in Health Services/Maternal & Child Health and an MFA in Fiction, both from the University of Washington. Yes, it’s an unusual combination. I have also spent over a decade working in youth development and advocacy.
I care about nutrition, social justice, food systems, access to quality health care and health education, words and stories, community, sustainability, and the natural world. I spend my time writing, frolicking, cooking, foraging, advocating, reading, and researching. I frequent farmers’ markets, share Shabbos dinners, and seek out interesting and kind people.
I like the bumper sticker that says, “I’d rather be here, now,” but in reality I’d probably rather be picking berries.
