About

I am a historian of women and medicine. 

After receiving my B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College, I earned my Ph.D. at Yale University's Program in the History of Science and Medicine. After graduate school, I spent a year working at a non-profit women's health organization. I teach courses in American history & politics, gender studies, and health humanities at Thomas Jefferson University (East Falls).

At the moment I am working on two projects: a reassessment of the 1970 Senate hearings on the safety of oral contraceptives and a history of doctors' wives from the mid-nineteenth century through the present.

When not reading or writing, I can be found running (slowly) or exploring coffee shops of the greater Philadelphia area.
