I am a freelance writer working in New Haven, Connecticut. I graduated with a B.A. in English from Columbia University in New York, and while working as a communications professional in Boston, earned a part-time Masters of Liberal Arts in Literature and Creative Writing from Harvard Extension School. An essay which was included in my thesis, was published in a collection of essays by Italian-American writers, collected by the literary journal Creative Nonfiction. My essays have also appeared in an edited collection on Medium, where it was also an Editors' Pick.
After college, I worked in publishing in New York, and then moved to Boston where I worked in Communications for Partners HealthCare, the non-profit parent organization of Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital. There, I worked on messaging about Partners' mission, which included writing press releases, planning events, creating visual campaigns for hospital initiatives, and collaborating on the Partners Annual Report.
I have lived in New Haven since 2013, where I work as a freelance writer for Yale University. Beyond that, I am the mother of two little boys, and continue to devote time to writing creative nonfiction. I write a humorous blogs on my mishaps cooking for children at fussymother.wordpress.com.
