Prior to "Nightline," I was a copy editor and staff writer for online publications at the Advisory Board Company, a health care consulting firm in Washington, D.C. There, I contributed to National Journal's "American Health Line," among other daily publications related to health care policy news.
I attended Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., where I graduated in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in English and American studies. I was a staff writer and wrote a weekly column on national politics for the Cornell Daily Sun during my senior year.
I am originally from Tenafly, N.J., notable for its appearance in a brief scene during the recent film, "Garden State."
