born and raised in a small(ish) town in new hampshire, i always knew that i would eventually move away for big city life. which city, i wasn’t sure, but i knew it would happen. as fate would have it, i attended school in westchester, ny—suny purchase college—graduating with a degree in journalism and anthropology.
i was fortunate enough to dive right into my career just weeks after graduating, landing a job with travel + leisure magazine’s digital team, where i worked up through the ranks over the course of nearly seven years. i started as a full-time freelancer, then assistant research editor, associate editor, and finally social media editor. during my tenure at t+l, i penned nearly 200 articles and blog posts, maximized the seo-friendliness of articles, oversaw online production schedule, and edited the in-book tech traveler page.
after leaving travel + leisure, i spent the next year freelancing, largely for digital trends, where i covered mobile tech news and product reviews/spotlights, as well as a few pieces with conde nast traveler.
but then it was time for another change. after accepting an account executive position with the tech-focused public relations firm max borges agency, i packed up all of my belongings and migrated south to miami, just narrowly missing a rather harrowing winter up north. (phew!)
i spent a year working with max borges agency, where i managed the social media accounts of several tech companies from around the country—from travel accessories to antennas to business apps and more—before making my return to the publishing world in january 2015, as an editorial assistant for interval international’s interval world magazines.
