Ever since I read my first issue of Your Big Backyard, I have been fascinated by stories that bring science to life. For more than a decade, I have been working as a reporter covering health care, biomedical research and lifestyle trends. My work has appeared in the New York Times, Newsweek, US News & World Report, TIME Magazine, Redbook, Health.com and WebMD. I have also appeared for guest spots on CNN, Inside Edition and NPR.
As the founder of Sayre Communications, I develop marketing materials—including e-newsletters, annual reports, magazines, web content and speeches—for major health care institutions. My client list includes: Mount Sinai Health System, Princeton University, NYU Langone Medical Center, Fox Chase Cancer Institute, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Bonei Olam, the Arthritis Foundation, Time Inc. and Lehigh University.
I started my career as a science reporter at TIME Magazine. As head reporter for the Briefing Section, I was the primary interviewer for the 10
Questions page, which featured interviews with notables such as Richard Branson and Madeline Albright. Most recently, I was the Senior
Communications Manager at Weill Cornell Medical College, where I developed the web page for the Office of Development.
Currently, I am the Consulting Communications Director for the Department of Psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. In this role, I developed a quarterly newsletter and am responsible for overseeing all departmental communications and marketing materials.
Based at my kitchen table in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, I can also be found making up fairytales for my littlest clients: Alyson and Joshua.
