Just a little about me...
A feature writer and executive editor with 10+ years experience, I’ve scooped Barbara Walters by landing the first interview with comeback kid Mickey Rourke after his Golden Globe nomination, top-edited features written by New York Times bestselling authors, and been a "talking head" everywhere from The Tucker Carlson Show to CMT.
And that’s just the tip of my editorial iceberg.
I've interviewed everyone from Oscar winners, Victoria's Secret supermodels, and Olympic gold medalists to local individuals making big waves in business, fitness, art, hospitality, and fashion for such glossy luxury publications as Gotham, Ocean Drive, Hamptons, Los Angeles Confidential, Capitol File, Boston Common, Vegas, and Aspen Peak. My work has also appeared in Vogue Australia, MensHealth.com, New York Spaces, Brides, Good Housekeeping, IN New York, Exuberance, Serendipity and Bloomberg Businessweek as well as on RubyLUX's e-zine, LuxPOP!
A proud graduate of West Virginia University's school of journalism, I cut my teeth as a reporter for The Daily Athenaeum—the country's 10th most read college newspaper—before joining the university's Art & Entertainment division doing editorial promotion for big-name concerts, including LeAnn Rimes, Sugar Ray and 311; lectures by global leaders such as Carl Bernstein, Spike Lee, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar; and other touring cultural performances. My senior year, I was one of four national winners of the American Advertising Federation's inaugural College Ad Challenge.
When I'm not on deadline or binge watching the latest Ryan Murphy series, I'm hanging out with my husband and son, cheering for the Steelers, or working on my first novel, a satirical take on Hollywood.
