I’m a Toronto-based journalist with more than 12 years of editorial experience in the magazine world. Previously the Acting Beauty Director at FLARE Magazine, I’m now the Editor of Cosmetics, a sister publication and the essential read for all beauty industry insiders.
Though I’ve covered the beauty and health beats for much of my career, I consider myself a generalist with many disparate interests and relish the challenge of tackling unfamiliar topics. I’ve interviewed celebrities and scientists, makeup artists and MDs, athletes and executives, and I love to delve into the latest news and nerdy research. I’m skilled at turning out easy-to-digest (but not boring) service pieces, as well as in-depth, reporting-driven features.
My career began in the traditional print world, but I’m also digitally savvy and excited to face the multi-platform future. I have hands-on experience leading the overhaul of a magazine website, using content management systems and social media tools, analyzing reader metrics and shaping digital content strategies.
My articles have been published in FLARE, Cosmetics, FASHION, Elle Canada, Glow, Best Health, Marketing Magazine, Canadian Business, PROFITguide.com, Innovation.ca and Travel + Leisure. I’ve also provided freelance editorial services to corporate clients.
My work has garnered the following industry nods:
As an editor, I’m adept at spotting the smallest errors while grasping the big picture, improving structure and finessing tone, and otherwise guiding writers in creating their best work while preserving their voice.
