I am an established fashion writer and editor with nine years’ experience in online and print media. I specialize in creating cross-platform, multi-channel content, researching and writing engaging features, and managing and producing editorial and social media content to support e-commerce, marketing, and PR initiatives.
I grew up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, before moving to Ontario, where I obtained a B.A. (Hons.) in Psychology from Queen’s University. I then spent six years at FASHION Magazine (Canada’s most-read glossy, with 2 million readers per issue), including three as its Western Editor in Vancouver, before being recruited to become Managing Editor at Aritzia, one of North America’s leading women’s contemporary fashion boutiques. At some point during all of this, I also completed my law degree.
As a journalist, I’ve covered everything from fashion and beauty to food, travel and design for the Business of Fashion, FLARE, ELLE Canada, NUVO, Canadian House & Home, enRoute, the Vancouver Sun, Chatelaine, Wallpaper, the Globe & Mail, the Georgia Straight, WE, and Montecristo. I also wrote and co-edited the Shops section of Time Out Vancouver: 2nd Ed. and have made numerous TV appearances – a highlight was appearing on NBC’s Today Show during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
In 2011, I moved to London, and am now Editorial Director at THE OUTNET.COM, part of The NET-A-PORTER Group. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
