Professional Experience

Need to cover the latest beauty and lifestyle trends online or in print? Look no further. Whether it's reporting on hair trends for SELF, GLO.COM or INSTYLE MAKEOVER, organizing my office on a budget for WOMAN'S DAY, blogging about beauty products for SHOP.COM, covering boutiques for NJ LIFE's shopping guide or spearheading the SELF Healthy Beauty Awards, I always give 100%. I started my career writing in-house at GLAMOUR and settled into freelancing full-time with writing and editing gigs. My portfolio is flush with print and content, focusing mostly on beauty, but also with fitness, fashion, health, profiles, how-to advice and short trend pieces. I'm also a whiz at managing special editorial projects, including awards, wrangling prizes for contests, or creating edit for custom magazines.
