I am a reporter at The Lever where I investigate the political corruption and corporate greed that runs our health care system and other businesses.

Prior to The Lever, I covered stories about my missing left temporal lobe and how the neural networks critical for language managed to rewire themselves; how Medicaid and insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act often don’t cover the basics, including injectable estrogen, needed by many transgender Americans; and how the medical coding system used by health insurance companies discriminates against trans patients seeking gender-affirming care. My work has appeared in High Country NewsKFF Health NewsKnowable Magazine, Nature MagazineThe New York Times, Science MagazineScientific American, SlateSmithsonian Magazine, WIRED and more.
