Thanks for checking out my clips. I worked at Cosmopolitan magazine for eight years. As the features director, I wrote about everything from wrongfully convicted prisoners to dangerous plastic surgery trends to how to squeeze more time out of your day. I edited dozens of print and online articles each month, oversaw all the fashion content, and managed junior editors. I also supervised special projects and events, including the award-winning Practice Safe Sun campaign to help fight skin cancer and our effort to raise awareness of college sexual assault, Cosmo Fights Campus Rape. I graduated magna cum laude from Georgetown University in 2003 with a double major in English and French, and later attended the Columbia Publishing Course.
Until November 2012, I had a glass-walled office overlooking the Hudson River, spent way too much money on shoes, and went out nearly every night of the week to places teeming with nerdy glasses and PBR. Then, my life flipped upside-down when I moved with my ski-addict husband to Stowe, VT—where people go to bed at 10 pm, stop for every pedestrian, and have discussions about the best way to stack wood (criss-crossed with a few inches of space between each log for ventilation). Considering cheese-making and needle felting are among my new passions, I guess I’ve nearly adjusted to life in the land of golden retrievers and Subaru Outbacks (…of which I have both).
