Kaitlin B8_9final I’m an author and journalist based in Troy, New York.

My work has appeared in many print and online publications, including The Guardian, Scientific AmericanSalon, The Boston Globe, Parents, Prevention, Refinery29, Modern Farmer, Psych Central, and Gastronomica. I conduct researching and fact checking for science magazines.

My first book, Dosed: The Medication Generation Grows Up, came out in 2012 and was released in paperback in fall 2014. I’m now working on a second book about medications, drug use and pregnancy.

I write about psychology, mental illness, medications, women’s health, parenting, and child development. I have also written about the history of science and medicine and make occasional forays into food writing and book reviewing.
