She frequently discusses gender, body image, and social justice on radio shows and podcasts and has spoken at conferences including SXSW. Her feminist essays have been published in several books. She has edited for Broadly, Teen Vogue, and several bestselling authors and ghostwritten for well-known CEOs. Whoopi Goldberg once cited one of her articles on The View in a debate over whether asking for what you want in bed is a feminist act. (She thinks it is.)

Her background in writing, editing, marketing, and communications ranges from Silicon Valley startups to academic journals. Before starting her freelance career, she served as Assistant Editor for Footnote, a site that translates academic research for mainstream audiences, Editorial Assistant for Differences: A Journal of Feminist Cultural Studies, Content Specialist for the tech startup WibiData, and Research Assistant for Brown’s Humanity-Centered Robotics Institute and Social Cognitive Science Laboratory.
