She is the co-author of the New York Times bestseller Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (2015).

An award-winning investigative reporter, she broke the news of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Charlie Rose, as well as CBS's knowledge of his conduct, in work published at the Washington Post.
