Health journalism, Special-needs issues


Swathmore College


I am passionate about addressing the concerns of the special-needs community and bringing their stories to the public, particularly the stories of those who cannot speak for themselves, like my son. Recently, I have pivoted into writing about medical and public health issues, particularly the coronavirus pandemic.
