Born in NYC in 1969. Raised in Rockland County, attended Barnard College. I had a long career in book publishing, first as a scout and then as an agent, and then made a career change in 2008 to pursue other interestss. I completed a Masters in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University and become a certified Life Coach with IPEC. Issues of process, loss, separation, end of life, how we tell our stories  -- these are things that interest me. I have four children, live in Brooklyn, consult at Maimonides Medical Center, and am a trustee of The Brooklyn Public Library.
