advocate, writer, mother of humans.
I am the Executive Director of ROAR NY, a community of hospitality leaders advocating for New York City's independent restaurant community and creating a path to a sustainable future. Our mission includes robust legislative and policy-based initiatives including reforming wage structure, industry operating standards, and health and wellness for restaurant workers. I'd love to tell you more! Reach out below.
I’ve been a journalist for twenty years, covering the intersection of food, business, law and policy for publications such as The New York Times, New York Magazine, Eater and Food & Wine.
I also run Strong Writing, a full-service copywriting studio for restaurant, hospitality, and food & beverage businesses.
