When I reported for City Limits on the factors that limit access to art therapy treatment in New York, I noticed how some could see the blockades in plain sight, from spotty insurance coverage to state regulations. Meanwhile, the barriers remained invisible to many—unnoticeable unless or until they try to access art therapy services. My goal as a journalist is to bring visibility to what many are unaware of, but some know all too well.
I will join CityLab as an Atlantic Media fellow in July 2018 to report on “the biggest ideas and most pressing issues facing the world’s metro areas and neighborhoods.”
My reporting has been published in City Limits, Chelsea Now and CNN. I also photographed the images accompanying my Chelsea Now stories. I graduated from Barnard College, of Columbia University, in 2018.
