Here’s some of my published writing around the internet. Generally, I tend to focus on topics in the arena of health, personal development, and societal change, garnering bylines with MindBodyGreen, SheKnows, Tiny Buddha, and Ravishly, among others.
A couple specific areas I’ve hyper-focused on are exploring the science, culture, and industry of cannabis at Leafly, Huffington Post, and Civilized—as well as earning an engaged 4.6k followers writing about growth and autism on Medium.
I do hope you enjoy it.
