Chicago-based writer with expertise in journalism, grants and medical writing. Proud alum of Northwestern, Johns Hopkins and the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program.

 こんにち! Hello!

I am a Chicago-based writer with expertise in grants, journalism and medical writing. I currently work as the lead science writer for the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, where I support the hospital’s researchers and clinicians in the writing and editing of grant proposals to federal agencies and private foundations.

Outside of work, I serve as Philanthropy Coordinator for JETAA Chicago and as co-chair of the Grants Committee for the National Association of Science Writers. I am interested in ways storytelling can fuel social change and how human stories reveal the complexities of public policy and scientific research, in particular as it relates to health care and human rights issues.

I received a Bachelor’s of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University and a Master’s of Arts in Science Writing from Johns Hopkins University. I also have certifications in medical writing and editing and Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
