There, she oversaw all original programming, integrated with Hearst and Rodale magazines and worked with E! Television/Online, HBO’s Sex and the City, Bloomberg and Gallup, among others. She left the traditional newsroom (Oakland Tribune, CNN) in 1997 but continues to write regularly about gender and digital storytelling (New York Times, LATimes.com, The Huffington Post, to name a few).
