A BIT ABOUT ME
I'm a journalist reporting on the intersection of religion, politics, gender and culture. I'm passionate about seeking out stories of complex identities, including people who straddle religious, ethnic and cultural lines. I'm currently based in New York and have reported from Israel and Puerto Rico.
I received my B.A. from Cornell University, where I studied government, and my M.A. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where I studied comparative religion, focusing on ancient Judaism and early Christianity. I speak English, Swedish, Hebrew and French and have studied a handful of other languages.
I currently work as a staff writer at the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, a news agency with more than 70 client publications around the world. My work has appeared in Refinery29, GO Magazine, Forward, Times of Israel, Hadassah Magazine and Psychology Today. I've been interviewed on KCRW and was a featured speaker at the Chicago Jewish Women's Foundation semi-annual power lunch. I'm a member of the Religion News Association.
