Hi, I'm Nicole. I'm a senior writer at Salon for the health and science vertical. I'm based in the California Bay Area, and I've been a writer at Salon since 2017. Throughout my time at Salon, I've covered politics, California culture, wellness, Silicon Valley, women's health, and mental health. Prior to Salon, my writing appeared in the New York Times, Marie Claire and The Bold Italic. In 2020, I was selected to participate in the University of Southern California's Health Journalism Fellowship. I'm currently writing a book about altruism and resilience, which will be published by UC Press in Spring 2025.
