WRITER | EDITOR | TRAVELER
I’m a longtime lifestyle writer and editor with expertise in both print and digital storytelling. In my over 10 years of experience I’ve been lucky enough to cover amazing trips, interview celebrities, review literature, profile philanthropists, capture amazing events, and discover the latest in tech and innovation. I’m currently managing editor for Travel Leaders Group, the largest travel agency company in North America, managing and editing publications including Andrew Harper Travel’s Traveler magazine, Destination Bliss, and Postcards. I’m also a freelance writer for The Telegraph's robust travel section (reaching 20 million readers a month) and DC Inno, which covers Washington's growing startup scene. Other recent freelance experience includes Google, Oyster.com and Capitol File.
I began my career in Multimedia Entertainment News for WUSA9's morning show, a fast-paced and deadline-driven role that led to a four-plus year position as Events & Society Reporter for Bisnow Media's The Scene Bisnow. I joined the staff of Washington Life Magazine, DC's premier luxury lifestyle publication, in 2014. There, my accomplishments include launching a successful book column, helping to increase the magazine's social media following by more than 25% and tripling the monthly output of web articles.
My love of writing stems from my love of literature. I hold an MFA in creative nonfiction writing from Antioch University Los Angeles, where I focused on social justice storytelling. I have a BA in English (cum laude) from Tulane University. I’ve also studied literature at New York University and Trinity College Dublin. My love of literature is also evident in my volunteer experience; I have worked to champion new authors as Creative Nonfiction Editor of The Citron Review literary journal and the Washington Independent Review of Books. I currently serve on the Board of Trustees for Ardmore Free Library.
When I am not reading or writing, my other interests include fashion, food, travel, theater and film, dogs and vintage shopping.
