About

The girl behind the blog

I’m a writer based in New York City. As an editorial fellow at Insider Inc., I write lifestyle stories for INSIDER, Business Insider and Insider Inc.’s syndication partners, such as MSN. I’m always on the hunt for a story to tell, my next favorite bagel spot, or a dog to pet (but not always necessarily in that order).

A little bit about me:

My story began in Sandusky, Ohio, where I spent most of my time either at swim practice or at my desk, filling notebooks with doodles and dreams about the future.

My family’s frequent travels sparked my love for writing when I was very young; my first fictional stories were inspired by childhood road trips. Since the days of printer paper and Crayola markers, my writing utensil(s) of choice have changed — but my love for storytelling has only flourished.

I graduated from the University of Florida in May 2019, where I studied journalism. As a student and reporter, columnist and editor for on-campus news outlets, I wrote about everything from quirky beauty trends (i.e. fidget spinner lip gloss), how tax reform could impact the academic community and female entrepreneurs (like these 15-year-old twins who developed their own app).

When I’m not putting pen to paper, I enjoy traveling, eating, photography, laughing and taking long walks on the beach in the Target office supply aisle.

Welcome to my blog — it’s a little slice of who I am, and I hope it inspires you to share your story, too.
