I'm an award-winning journalist turned Director of Communications at the Institute for Translational Medicine that’s powered by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and a lecturer at The University of Chicago and UChicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine.
I LOVE teaching science communication to physicians, researchers, faculty, medical students, and undergraduates, and my high-energy presentations grace the stages of global and national conferences.
As a partner at Vantius and licensed private detective, my favorite high-profile cases are helping to exonerate wrongfully-convicted individuals. I'm also a proud alum of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Media, and Integrated Marketing Communications.
I'm a lover of rescue pit bulls, yoga, travel, and awesome alliteration. ;-)
