I love helping people tell their story—and I love telling stories—about the things that help us navigate these uncertain but exciting times we live in.
I have more than 20 years of experience as a writer, researcher, and speaker with an expertise in compelling communications about important issues that affect real Americans.
I have written widely about women, health, education, parenting, equality, and the environment. And I have written for and about leaders in a wide range of fields, including business, the media, science, and the arts.
A former Harvard University fellow and Ashoka Changemakers thought leader, I am coauthor of Ecoliterate and contributor to The Compassionate Instinct, Smart by Nature, A Place at the Table, and The Creation of the Future and other books. My work has appeared in The New York Times, Time, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Christian Science Monitor, The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post, More and elsewhere.
My current book project explores the unique burdens and joys of living in the age of climate of change. Ever since I became a mother, this issue has served as a touchstone for me that illuminates much about human nature—including how we relate to risk, think about power, navigate fears, respond to change, develop resilience, decide what it means to be a good parent now, and experience the preciousness of something, or someone, when we no longer take it for granted.
