Health + Wellness
Originally, my plan was to become a child psychologist (hence my byline on this journal study), but during my undergrad studies I discovered a passion for journalism. Life took me to NYU's graduate program for journalism, during which I interned at Psychology Today for a year. I also spent a year in an honors "portfolio" program reporting stories about individuals with a disability.
Since then I've tried to help entrepreneurs with tips on when to call it quits or how to manage their business from a sick bed. I've also looked into dementia villages, the future of lung transplants, how artificial intelligence is improving medical diagnoses, workaholism, goat yoga and an unlikely partnership to curb impaired driving. One psychotherapist even shared his experiences helping those curious about an assisted death.
My most personal work to date took several years to process and is dedicated to parents who've ever lost a child: The First Time I was a Father.
