I'm a longtime women's health and lifestyle journalist who specializes in introducing readers to health breakthroughs, study-proven natural remedies and practical self-help.

My articles have appeared in dozens of major magazines and newspapers around the globe including Cosmopolitan, CosmoGIRL, Glamour, Marie Claire, The New York Daily News and Vibe.

I currently write the weekly "News You Need to Know" and "Recession Busters" articles for Woman's World magazine and have regularly contributed health and lifestyle articles to the publication for over a decade.

In addition, I'm the founder of Hormonology and creator of the Hormone Horoscope, which is detailed in my book, 28 Days: What Your Cycle Reveals about Your Love Life, Moods, and Potential (Adams Media). Named one of the top 10 women's health books of 2005 by and translated into four languages, 28 Days has been featured in magazines, newspapers, radio programs and television news programs across the U.S. and internationally. I'm currently writing a second edition of this book.

I've also created a menstrual cycle tracker app that delivers a daily Hormone Horoscope, which is available for free at the App Store and Google Play.

When not writing, you'll find me having fun with my husband, Douglas, and our two rescue dogs, trying vainly to master new recipes in my kitchen, attending a Tampa Bay Rays game (go Rays!) and enjoying my new hometown of sunny Saint Petersburg, Florida.
