Journalism Clips

It’s been a long, twisty road to becoming a cookbook author.  Years before I was dreaming up Fresh Made Simple, I was working in finance in New York, a city where I truly learned to love eating out.  I made the move to Boston with my now husband for his job and went to graduate school for journalism.  I have been lucky to freelance for the Globe and ultimately land as a reporter for Reuters in its Boston bureau.  I never thought I’d have the chance to sit yards away from Whitey Bulger in federal court, liberate lobsters with Buddhists off the shores of Massachusetts or write a feature on familial DNA as a forensic search tool for criminals. When I left Reuters, just before my little girl was born, Maggie Battista at EatBoutique gave me my first chance to do some food writing.  I helped her taste test small batch food, pack food gift boxes, and edit and write for her site.


Below is a selection of stories I’ve written for the Boston Globe, Reuters and EatBoutique.
