You got the gist on the homepage, but since you’re itching for more…
In my free time, I’m probably hanging out in Brooklyn, trying new wellness products, or eating at Win Son. I have a growing interest in restorative justice, sustainability, 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 (I’m nothing if not basic), 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 people in the same boat can feel seen and heard.
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 spent my days assisting the Editor-in-Chief, working on special projects like the Healthy Beauty Awards, creating content for our Snapchat and Twitter audience, and writing for the Beauty & Commerce teams. I moved onto my current role as SELF’s commerce writer in August of 2021, where I write up to 25 articles each month about products within the fitness, sleep, beauty and skincare, technology, and more industries.
During my four years 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.
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.
