A native of Berkeley, I grew up working on high school and college newspapers and earned a master's degree from Columbia J-School. I've worked in various reporting, editing and teaching jobs overseas and in the U.S., with the last decade in the Bay Area. I spend a lot of time working on behalf of Journalism & Women Symposium, whose mission is to support the professional empowerment and personal growth of women in journalism and work toward a more accurate portrayal of the whole society. We host a national conference each year and put on regional networking and training events.
