About Me

Thanks for visiting my site! I am a freelance journalist with a passion for health, wellness, culture, and travel. My words can be found in the New York Times, Washington Post, Self, The Atlantic, and Marie Claire. Please visit my bylines page for a complete list.

So far this year, I’ve written about how social media filters affect teens’ self-esteem, disparities in Black maternal health, and how to make affluent sports more inclusive. I am passionate about running, health and wellness, and travel.

When I’m not writing, I’m training for a marathon or hiking with my dogs. Interested in working with me? Send me an email! hello@tonya-russell.com
