Hello! Thanks for stopping by. Here's a little bit about me. I'm a reporter, producer and promoter of all things female.

Bridging the gap between how men and women are treated in the world is something I'm passionate about.

I'm originally from Saratoga Springs, NY. I studied Journalism and Spanish at the University of Minnesota and rowed Division-1. In 2007, my crew of incredibly strong women and I won an NCAA Championship.

I love sharing stories, traveling and being active in the community.

My husband and I live near Manhattan Beach, CA with our two cats whom we are both obsessed with.
