I spend my days as the senior editor of a luxury lifestyle magazine, where I manage print and online projects. This work includes planning, editing, reporting, and writing engaging and accurate content for all magazine sections and the Web; booking and interviewing celebrities and notables; and representing the magazine at events and for media interviews, including appearances on Fox News Channel and Fox 5 News.
I formerly served as senior associate editor of AARP The Magazine, the largest circulation magazine in the world with 35 million readers. There, I supervised editorial and social media projects on deadline. I also represented the magazine on editorial panels, including two at the 2012 conference of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, and (again) served as a source for media interviews. (For instance, my reporting on “elf ears” inspired a segment on Good Morning America and an ABC News article. Go ahead and click. It’s okay!)
As a freelance writer and editor, I enjoy health, lifestyle, and style topics, and I’ve covered everything from restaurants to real estate. I even contributed to U.S. News & World Report’s first ebook How to Live to 100. (Other jobs I’ve held include my post as associate editor of SAMHSA News, the award-winning newsletter of the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and as a reporter for The Gazette newspaper, part of The Washington Post Company.)
I’m bilingual in English and Spanish, and when I’m not in writing wonderland, I love shopping. And traveling. Want to know more? Feel free to wander around my site or contact me directly.
