I'm Liz Funk.

I like writing and speaking about passionate people living happier, healthier lives.

I have written for USA Today, Newsday, the Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor,, MSNBC, the Huffington Post, CosmoGIRL! and the Albany Times Union.

I frequently speak at colleges and teach workshops for young women on stress reduction, healthy ambition, and achieving for the right reasons.

I'm the author of "Supergirls Speak Out," a non-fiction book about how many of today's overachieving girls in high school and college feel like they need to be perfect, do everything, and please everyone and that they're not good enough when they're "in neutral." The book was published by Simon and Schuster in 2009.

I live in New York City, where I'm at work on my next non-fiction book about how college students and 20somethings can articulate their "calling."  

I enjoy drinking lattes, reading Inc. magazine and books by entrepreneurs, and eating raspberries.  I literally always have Moleskine notebooks and a water bottle on my person.  You can find me on Twitter at @LizFunk.
