I’m a writer, covering issues related to lifestyle, parenting and immigrant identity. I formerly worked as a college writing instructor and journalist on both U.S. coasts (with a brief stint in Russia), winning awards from the New York Press Association.
My essays, stories and articles have been published in The Washington Post, SheKnows, The Chicago Tribune, The Moscow Times, Quartz, Dow Jones Newswires, Scary Mommy, Kveller, Babble, Volume 1 Brooklyn, Ravishly and others.
During the day, I help others craft their own stories. Often, I make too much borscht in hopes that my children will eat it.
