After drawing inspiration from my adventures — both personal and professional — in Los Angeles and New York City, I made my way back to my Midwestern roots in Chicago. From there, I began my work in the media world and honed my experience in digital and breaking entertainment news, long-form writing, entertainment journalism, celebrity and sports reporting, and more.
My work has been featured in Us Weekly, where I spent more than two years as a staff writer on the digital news team. In my over 8 years of red carpet reporting for Us Weekly, I had the privilege of interviewing celebrities such as Justin Timberlake, Gabrielle Union, and many more. In 2021, I was lucky enough to receive an opportunity to work on the digital team for Entertainment Tonight, and the experience so far has been nothing short of amazing. On top of my position at ET, I am also contributing to Parade and Motherly by reviewing mom/baby products.
Other outlets I've contributed to include ESPN, Elite Daily, Motherly, and Parade Magazine as well as travel and lifestyle writing for Bespoke Concierge Magazine and Newport Beach Magazine. I have also spent time writing powerful pieces for APlus.com and penning a dating and relationship section for About.com.
Beyond my writing work, I've worked as a nationwide event manager where I've traveled all over the United States and sharpened my people skills. Outside of the box, I've coached high school softball and taught a journalism program to children and teens in Chicago, something I am very proud of.
On the side, I'd love to begin writing Lifetime movie scripts, which has always been a dream of mine. I'd love to work with you, so don't hesitate to reach out!

More About Me
I'm more than just my work.
I believe in living life to its fullest and finding inspiration in everyday life. When I'm not working, you can find me indulging in fitness, red wine and the love of my family, friends and dogs. You can often find my husband, Sal, and I exploring our neighborhood or taking strolls in the city with our beautiful daughter.
Sal and I welcomed our baby girl, Salma, in December 2020 and life has definitely not been the same. My goal is to provide her a life rich in experience, so you'll always find us trying out new things and taking in culture all around us.
You can always count on me to throw an epic dinner party for pals no matter how big or small the occasion!
We've all been through a lot in the last few months, there's no doubt about it. Everyone's experience with the coronavirus pandemic has been different, but I think there's one thing we have all learned since March: Self-care is necessary for our physical, mental, and emotional health. For me,...
After years of only displaying professional work on my website, I've decided to give blogging a go! Trust me, I understand there are more than enough professional bloggers out there who are more well-equipped to entertain an audience than I am, but, nonetheless, here I am. In recent months, I...
