You got the gist on the homepage, but here’s a little bit more about who I am.
In my free time, I’m probably hanging out in my Brooklyn apartment because living in NYC is expensive. I have a growing interest in plants and living a low-waste lifestyle. I’m devoted to my friends and my French press. I love the specialty foods from Trader Joe’s, Broadway, reading historical fiction novels and biographies, and thinking about Succession.
Wrestling with orthorexia as a teenager shaped my desire to pursue wellness journalism and fitness instructing as career options. I also am open about my journey living with PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) so that other women in the same boat can feel seen and heard.
Onto my professional life.
After I graduated from Temple University, I moved to Brooklyn and worked as an editorial fellow for Town & Country magazine. In November 2019, I was hired as the editorial assistant at Condé Nast’s SELF magazine. I grew up reading SELF and spend my days assisting the Editor-in-Chief, working on special projects like the Healthy Beauty Awards, creating content for our Snapchat audience, and writing for the Beauty & Commerce teams.
During my time at Temple, I interned with Well+Good, Her Campus, Reader’s Digest (as part of the ASME summer program), Philadelphia magazine, and more. In addition to internships, I founded the university’s first women’s lifestyle magazine, REFINE, during my senior year. I served as the Editor-in-Chief for the 2018-2019 academic year and led a team of 30+ women to produce an issue each semester, as well as weekly blog updates and daily social media posts.
Throughout my college career, I was a Her Campus devotee. I served a Features writer, and later the Beauty Features Editor, for the national Her Campus site. I wrote more than 100 articles during my time. I also held various positions on the Her Campus Temple Executive Board, including the role of President/Co-Campus Correspondent.
I served on two Temple Student Government administrations from 2017-2019, as the Director of Communications and Publicist, respectively. In addition, I worked on three Temple Student Government executive campaigns on the Communication teams. All three teams won their elections. I also had a year-long stint as the Head Photography Editor for the Templar, Temple University’s official yearbook.
I have a passion for magazine media, inclusive and attainable wellness, and self-care. What does the future look like? Don’t ask me that; I work in media.
