I’m a New York City-based editor with a passion for interior design and pop culture who is often candid online and IRL about mental health, chronic illness, and life as a 30-something queer woman. My greatest talents (aside from the professional stuff) are making grilled cheeses and applying liquid liner, but I’m also into crafts, karaoke, and playing guitar, too. I like to think Leslie Knope would consider me a land mermaid (and as proof, you can find me marching in the Coney Island Mermaid Parade every summer, just FYI.)
I’m currently the Associate Editorial Director, Home Commerce at Dotdash Meredith, where I lead a team of writers and editors on the home vertical (Real Simple, Better Homes & Gardens, and Southern Living) working on news and deals-related commerce stories. In this role, I strategize day-to-day and tentpole sale content, approve pitches, assign stories, edit content, select headlines, and edit and approve email newsletters as well. Before stepping into this role in February 2022, I started as a Senior Ecommerce Editor at Meredith in January 2021, managing a team of writers and editors, editing commerce stories, and assisting with content planning and strategy for brands like People, InStyle, Real Simple, Travel + Leisure, Food & Wine, Health, and more on a centralized team.
Previously, I was the Market Editor at House Beautiful, identifying trends, shopping for cool home products, and strategizing and writing content with an e-commerce and SEO focus for digital. I also worked on House Beautiful‘s print magazine, selecting and calling in products, working on photoshoots, and writing copy for a back-of-book shopping column called “The End.” Before that, I was a part-time Dating Writer at Elite Daily, as well as the Weekend Editor at NYLON, covering news and editing features on Saturdays and Sundays. I was also the Assistant Lifestyle Editor for Apartment Therapy, where I covered everything from cleaning and money to dating and wellness with a little travel mixed in.
Prior to that, I was a Staff Writer for Business News Daily, where I wrote business content inspired by pop culture, had a weekly advice column, and ran a photo series highlighting small businesses, among other features. I was also previously the Associate Editorial Director at Bluelink Marketing, where I managed multiple blogs and the company’s internship program. And before all of that, I studied Cold War history and non-fiction writing at Drew University in the forest of Madison, New Jersey.
