As a certified health coach, former healthy restaurant consultant and long-time health writer, I knew I should eat only healthy food. But I had a very unhealthy sweet tooth. So I got to work in my Brooklyn kitchen. Thinking outside the oven, I experimented with whole beans (yes, beans!) and oats instead of traditional flour or gluten-free substitutes.
One year and hundreds of dirty pans later, I have created a collection of gluten free, vegan brownies, blondies and bars full of guilt-free goodness. Made from only natural, non-GMO ingredients, they’re free of wheat, animal products, soy and contain no preservatives. In fact, PURE GENIUS goodies are so healthy you can eat them for breakfast but so satisfying they’ll crush your cravings. So go ahead—have your treats and eat them too!
Before founding PURE GENIUS, I wrote about health for more than 20 years (as well as doing some menu consulting for restaurants--scroll down for more info). My articles have appeared in O Magazine, Prevention, Parade Magazine, Real Simple, More, Men's Journal, Redbook, Health, Self, Fitness, Readers Digest, Ladies Home Journal, Good Housekeeping, Parenting, Parents, ChargeUpForGoodHealth.com, IdeasThatSpark.com, YourFamilyToday.com, NYTimes.com, The New York Daily News, The Washington Post, The Seattle Post-Intelligenger, and many other publications. I have also contributed several Op-Eds to The New York Times. In addition, I'm the coauthor of The Case Against Homework: How Homework Is Hurting Our Children and What We Can Do About it (Crown, 2006), and I've authored or coauthored several other books.
A former senior editor at Cosmopolitan, Child and other magazines, I've also been the Mommy Strategies columnist for Redbook, Learning Curve columnist for Working Mother, and Healthy Families columnist for Selecciones (the Spanish-language version of Reader’s Digest).
TV and RADIO APPEARANCES: I've been a frequent guest on TV and radio. I'veappeared on The Today Show, CBS Evening News, ABC Eyewitness News, Good Day New York, Fox & Friends , The Brian Lehrer Show on NPR, The Dennis Prager Show (syndicated), The Mitch Albom Show (syndicated), The Drew Mariani Show on Relevant Radio, The Parent Coach with Connie Sinclair, and many other radio programs from coast to coast.

I'm a graduate of Princeton University and have a masters degree from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. I'm also a graduate of the Professional Program at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and a holistic health coach certified by Purchase College, SUNY and The American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). I'm also a former adjunct professor at New York University's Graduate School of Journalism. I live with her husband and daughter in Brooklyn, New York.
