ABOUT ME

Storytelling is all I've ever known. At age 4, before I learned to read, I'd make up my own version of Jeff Brumbeau's The Quiltmaker's Gift each time I'd flip through its pages.

 

Currently, I'm an assistant fitness editor at POPSUGAR. I delve into the world of squats, healthy eating, superstar athletes, and mental health. I've reviewed the latest technology in home workouts, reported on some pretty amazing influencers in health and wellness, and gotten personal about growing up as a gymnast. I've collaborated with trainers to publish fitness challenges and workouts, and I have gotten to work on some really impactful features. Oh, and Vanessa Hudgens told me all about her intermittent fasting, and Amy Schumer discussed all things vaginas — because we don't talk about them enough!

 

Prior to this, I was a digital writer for Metro US, covering health, entertainment, food, and everything in between. I wrote about the first Jewish "Miss Germany" and Country duo LOCASH. I reviewed a kick-butt workout app from Simone De La Rue. For the sake of journalism (and good eats) I ventured down to Brooklyn to try cheese tea (yes, it's a thing) and even lost my lox and schmear virginity for an article. 

 

I formerly held two positions at Hearst Magazines: first as an editorial intern at WomansDay.com and CountryLiving.com, then as an editorial fellow for GoodHousekeeping.com and HouseBeautiful.com. You can find pieces from my time at Hearst here, on this website.

 

I graduated from Ithaca College with a B.A. in writing, feature writing concentration, and minor in communication, management, and design (it's a mouthful, I know). I have a keen eye for detail, am a big fan of the Oxford comma, and live off coffee, creativity, and a good workout.

 

On this website, you'll find a compilation of my published work ranging from articles to creative writing. View some of my clips below or select the "featured work" tab above for a full list of bylines!

 

Follow me on Medium to read a few personal essays. (I say "a few" because I haven't posted one in a while.)

WRITER.  JOURNALIST.  STORYTELLER.
