Professional musings

I have worked as a professional writer in many ways, shapes and forms since graduating with a degree in English and a minor in Journalism in the mid-90s. I love to write! Here, I feature some of my work that has been published in magazines and work associated with my full-time job as editor of the thrice-yearly published Karmanos Hope magazine.

Articles published in the Detroit Jewish News:

  • Story about Karmanos’ Friends Like Me program, which engages children in art therapy activities as a way for them to cope with a family member or loved one with cancer. Click here to see the published piece.
  • Story about Howard Katz (no relation to me), who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and received support through the Men’s Support Group at Karmanos. Read his story here and here.
  • Marcie Paul was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2009. Read about her experience being treated at Karmanos and her involvement in the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance here.
  • Leah Davidson, who passed away from leukemia in 2011, was the inspiration behind the Leah A. Davison Healing Arts Fund at Karmanos, which offers to cancer patients complementary therapies such as massage, Reiki, Tai Chi, yoga and meditation. Read about Leah and the complementary therapies here.

I have served as editor of Karmanos Hope magazine since 2011. I am responsible for story conceptualization, working with free-lance writers and layout people, editing content and coordinating the various approval schedules associated with magazine production.
