I’m a freelance writer covering politics, health care and parenting in the midwest. Previously I’ve worked as a grassroots organizer for a reproductive rights organization and in a social work capacity for a community health center. My favorite topics to write about include reproductive justice, health care access and maternal mental health. Check out my full portfolio HERE.

I started this blog in 2011 as an unemployed college grad with dual degrees in journalism and political science. After a couple short stints reporting for newspapers, I took a turn toward political advocacy and have since been focused on creating a career that combines the two.

I live in the Kansas City area with my husband, labradoodle and two kids. I love running, cooking and traveling so those topics will show up here as well! Thanks for stopping by.
