In his book Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone, NYU sociologist Eric Klinenberg describes me as “something of a hero for the growing ranks of singletons who are learning to feel secure with their status, and she is often their public face. She appears frequently on popular national television and radio programs to explain that going solo is a viable, legitimate, and not necessarily lonely way to dwell in a city—a point that is surprisingly controversial given how many people are already living alone.”
My work as a writer, coach and community-builder has been featured by more than 100 national, international, and local outlets.
I talk with the media often about changing trends related to being single and also about equal, healthy relationships in which women do not lose themselves, the growing mini-trend of self-marriage, dating, healthy sexuality, feminism, and tango and its lessons for life. I also talk about how to make to-do lists that feel good to cross off and healthy work-life balance as well as creating an unconventional life that suits you. I am frequently quoted as a dating and lifestyle expert in press such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, NPR, and Washington Post.
