about me

Stories I’ve worked on have been reprinted in the Best American Essays, the Best American Travel Writing, and the Best Women’s Travel Writing and have been awarded the Pushcart Prize. I was a coordinating editor for the Best Creative Nonfiction series, published by W.W. Norton, and have helped edit and publish books and anthologies covering such topics as end-of-life care, personalized medicine, education, mental health, and parenting. For eighteen years, I was the managing editor at Creative Nonfiction magazine. Before I was an editor, I taught middle school Latin.
