Brady's essays and stories have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and were finalists for the Katherine Anne Porter Fiction Prize and the Nelsen Algren Short Story contest.

She teaches creative writing at New York University and New York Writers Workshop @​ the Jewish Community Center, and works as a free-lance editor, helping writers across the spectrum take their writing to the next stage.
