I grew up outside Denver, Colorado, went to Brigham Young University (yes, I was Mormon; no, I'm not anymore), earned my master's degree from Hunter College, and spent most of my adult life in Brooklyn. I currently live with my family in Westchester County.

I also have a wellness coaching business, Hot Shift.

When I'm not busy creating Iā€™m lifting weights, rolling out my muscles, doing yoga, taking gymnastics, taking long walks, meditating, tending my plant pets, taking long baths, or cooking dinner.
