Hi! In addition to writing Weightless, I’m an associate editor at Psych Central. I pen pieces on everything from anxiety to ADHD to creativity and couples.
Unofficially, my writing career began in elementary school when I composed my first-ever fairy tale (my mom still has it!), months after emigrating from Russia.
Officially, I began freelancing after graduating with an MS in clinical psychology from Texas A&M University. There, I studied body image and disordered eating — subjects close to my heart.
Recently, I co-wrote the eBook Heart to Heart: 20 Poems, Meditations + Affirmations to Embrace Your Body & Cultivate Kindness, with my close friend and Curvy Yoga founder Anna Guest-Jelley. You can learn more here.
