She spent the earlier part of her career working as a clinician in hospitals and outpatient clinics throughout New York City. Later, she went on to work with one of the largest managed care organizations in the country where she developed benefit plans for Fortune 500 companies, as well as state governments.

Her years of experience working in health care gives her a unique understanding of the topics about which she writes as a health journalist.
