I’m an award winning magazine writer, with articles published in over twenty national publications, including Glamour, Self, Parents, Health, In Style, Newsweek and the New York Post. Recent honors have included being a finalist in the 2012 National Magazine Awards (considered the top honor in magazine journalism) for a piece I did for Redbook on the upswing in “mommy tucks” and a recipient of the prestigious Front Page Award from the Newswomen’s Club of New York for a series for Health magazine. I usually write about health and fitness, although occasionally I do write about something completely different and random (like a resurgence in swinging in last March’s issue of Self). I feel lucky that I have a career that lets me work from home and be near the kids. Quite frankly, with all of Johanna’s therapies I would have struggled had it been any other way.
Before I had kids, I was an avid runner (three time marathoner) and sometimes triathlete. I’ve also gone sky diving and bungee jumping in Queensland, dove with sharks in Australia, and been thisclose to ferocious wild lions in an African safari. Today, my live is much less glamorous–and much more focused on the mundane like poopy diapers and spit up. But it’s still fun.
