Hi! I'm Liz.
I am a writer, reporter and editor living in Brooklyn, New York with my husband, two daughters, and two inscrutable cats.
As a writer, I have published stories on health, beauty, fitness, nutrition, travel, or whatever is on my mind, whether it's how I feel about destination spas, a screed against our culture of unrealistic beauty, or a celebration of DGAF winter dressing. I have written about sleep dentistry, cult fitness trainers, and facelifts. I've reviewed baby products, sports bras, and eye creams. I've reported on eye surgery, labia surgery, and bariatric surgery. I've tracked 24-hours in the life of Carrie Underwood, asked Nick Lachey about his baby's bedtime routine, and confessed my undying love for watching QVC.
I have worked as an editor for a variety of magazines: More magazine, Health magazine, Good Housekeeping, Parents magazine, Real Simple magazine, Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine, Self magazine and Scholastic Parent & Child magazine.
As an editor, I've packaged and edited articles on everything from heart disease to back-to-school routines; from etiquette to eating disorders; from hair makeovers to health blunders.
Just to prove I am nothing if not a jack of all trades (and master of some!) I've also proven my chops in worlds outside of magazines: I've done copywriting for Birchbox and Bumble and bumble; I’ve created sparkling text for Sephora holiday catalogs. I’ve written marketing emails for Roller Rabbit, as well as updated all of their site copy and their style guide. I've also written for more "corporate" clients such as Danone, Johnson & Johnson, the National Resources Defense Council, the University of California at San Francisco, and Canyon Ranch. I've edited proposals, annual reports, and other collateral for Arabella Advisors, a philanthropy consultancy.

Oh, and I have a BA in Comparative Literature from Brown University, which mostly just means that I ultimately couldn't decide between being a French major or an English major. That, and the fact that I was able to live in Paris for close to a year-and-a-half. Oui! Oui!
I like dried fruit, making to-do lists, watching plastic surgery on Snapchat, doing impossible crossword puzzles, and parallel parking.
I'd love to hear from you! Yes, YOU!
