Hi! I’m a freelance writer and editor based in New York. My last job was at SELF magazine, where I was the senior news editor and wrote about everything from addiction medicine to celebrity wellness trends. Before that, I worked at Health magazine, covering the COVID-19 pandemic, new medical research, and cancer. I was a fellow of the Association of Health Care Journalists’ 2020 class on Women’s Health Journalism and 2021 class on Cancer Reporting.

My work has also appeared in Observer, Vice, CNN, BBC, The Independent, AM New York, Verywell Health, and Good Housekeeping. To get in touch, email me at oneill.maggieh@gmail.com or find me on Twitter @maggieoneill19.

Below are some stories I especially loved reporting and writing.
