Professional Experience

As a highly-experienced lifestyle reporter and copywriter, I cover beauty, fashion, weddings, shopping, relationships, food, and more. My client list includes dozens of national magazines, web, and commerce sites, including. MICHAEL KORS, COSMOPOLITAN, GLAMOUR, GOOD HOUSEKEEPING, and BRIDES. I've also made a number of TV guest appearances as a beauty/style expert; and am currently a contributing writer to JOICO/ZOTOS, one of the largest international haircare companies. While my topics run the gamut from lighthearted to serious, I love to focus on topics that improve readers' everyday lives...from reviewing the hottest new beauty finds on the market...to showing readers how they can stand their ground with a bullying boss. That said, it's hard for me to turn down writing about beauty and weddings in any way, shape, or form. I'm a sucker for a great pink lipgloss.
