Everything Must Go

I wrote an investigative piece regarding the disappearing independent retail scene in D.C. It was a Washington City Paper cover story. You can read it here.

The Post produces an annual Spring Cleaning Guide where experts suggest what people should toss from their lives. I explain why people should get rid of investment clothes

Women in D.C. face Obstacles at every step of pregnancy and childbirth

In 2018 Washington, D.C. reported one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the nation. I co-wrote an investigative report about why D.C. mothers keep dying. You can read the cover story here.

Holiday Shopping Guides 

  • Holiday Shopping Guide 2017 (cover story) here.

  • The 2016 shopping guide came out following the election. D.C. voted 90.9% for Clinton and 4.1% for Trump, so it was an odd time for a shopping guide as a cover story. I wrote about the collision of retail and politics. You can read it here.

  • Holiday Shopping Guide 2015 (cover story) here.

  • Holiday Shopping Guide 2014 (cover story) here.
