About Me

I’m a Washington, D.C.-based journalist and editor interested in migration, security, human rights and the ways that women around the world are working for change. My writing has appeared on the cover of Newsweek and in Businessweek, ELLE UK, The New Yorker Online, Politico EU, The Daily BeastMashable, Al Jazeera America and other publications.

I’m a freelance editor for HuffPost, where I produce the Her Stories newsletter, a weekly roundup of reporting from its 15 global editions about women breaking barriers in their lives and communities.

Before moving to D.C., I spent four years based in Istanbul, focusing on the refugee crisis and ISIS and reporting from Europe and the Middle East.

I’ve also worked as a digital editor at NBC and taught writing at a prep school in D.C. and literature at a public high school in New York City. I have a master’s degree from the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism.
