Her first solo comic, the Xeric award-winning Inside Vineyland, was published in 2003. Her collection Girl Stories, which originated as a series of short webcomics, was published by Henry Holt in 2006. Her work has appeared in The Best American Comics: An Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Kramer's Ergot, and The Graphic Canon. In 2015 her five-part webcomic, Carriers, about dealing with the discovery that she and her husband are carriers of the gene that causes cystic fibrosis, won a Gold Medal from The Society of Illustrators.
