Some of us still care about COVID. It’s a strange, lonely existence - trying to make good choices in a world that has apparently given up. This newsletter is my attempt to to feel less lonely by sharing information, analysis, and my own experience as the last mask standing. With any luck it will make subscribers feel a little less lonely too.

About Me

I’m not an epidemiologist but I am a public health professional. I’ve been working on global health program implementation for over twenty years, and right now I’m doing a mix of COVID and non-COVID work. I have an MPH in international health from Boston University and an undergrad degree in foreign affairs from Georgetown University. I am also a trained executive and leadership coach, and one of the recurring themes in my coaching practice is how to live in this COVID world. I live outside the US with my husband, our two kids, and my mother.

Why subscribe?

Unpaid subscribers get full access to the newsletter and website. I’m not going to make any newsletters paid-only. Paid subscribers get all that, and they can send me suggested newsletter topics and I’ll write about them to the best of my ability.
