I am Amy Westervelt, a writer and editor who covers health, business, and the environment. I contribute regularly to Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and a variety of publications, most recently Fast Company, Slate, and Good. In the past I have been on staff at Spa Magazine, Earth Island Journal, Heeb, VenusZine, Planet Magazine, and Sustainable Industries.
My magazine work has appeared in numerous national publications including Conde Nast Traveler, BusinessWeek, and Travel + Leisure, and I’ve written books for Fodor’s, Great Destinations, and Wallpaper. In 2007, I won a Folio Eddie for my feature on the potential of algae as a feedstock for biofuel.
