Storytelling: Writing and Editing
Interviewing, writing, editing and the art of storytelling is how I first became in touch with my desire to become a health practitioner. I found inspiration in the richness and resilience of the stories of the people I spoke with as they navigated healing in their lives. I decided to help others discover this resilience as a practitioner while continuing to spread awareness through writing.
I have been a practicing journalist for over 15 years, working at my local newspaper when I was 18 years old. I hold a Masters from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. I served as the Editor in Chief of the California Journal of Oriental Medicine for three years and I also continue to publish stories on health and wellness as a freelance journalist. I am published in Natural Home, Parents magazine, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal among other publications.
Writing has become a healing practice and I find immense joy in helping others express themselves to the world. I first discovered the innate relationship of writing and healing when I worked as a writing coach to cancer patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. These patients had the space to express and facilitate the words to heal through writing.
I have since continued this liaison in writing and coaching by consulting on Chinese medicine related articles, editing a Chinese Medicine Oncology book and a doctoral dissertation on techniques to help combat practitioner burnout.
Personally, I use writing as a guide to access my inner knowing. If this sounds intriguing to you or is also a passion of yours, let’s explore it together in practice.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm always curious to hear about others' relationship to writing and I would love to connect over shared interest.
