About Me

Thank you for visiting!

I’m a writer, editor, and podcaster primarily covering fashion and beauty, society and culture, and, most especially, the British Royal Family and other royal families around the world.

I serve as Marie Claire’s Senior Celebrity and Royals Editor and have also contributed to publications like Allure, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, People, Vanity Fair, Vogue, and W, among others. Before my current role, I was Weekend Editor and then Royals Editor at Marie Claire, the first person to have the latter role in the magazine's long history. I frequently appear as a media commentator, and my work has appeared on outlets like NBC’s Today Show, ABC’s Good Morning America, CNN, The New York Times, and more.

I am the cohost of Podcast Royal, a show that was named a top five royal podcast by The New York Times. A voracious reader and lover of books, I also host I’d Rather Be Reading, where I spotlight the best current nonfiction books and interview the authors of them.

I was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas and graduated from the University of Kansas with a bachelor's degree in journalism and mass communications in 2009 and the University of Mississippi with a master’s degree in higher education administration in 2011. After six years of freelance writing on the side while pursuing a career in higher education, in 2017 I took the leap and finally became a full-time writer after none other than Khloé Kardashian gave me my big break. I was a business journalist for four years before stepping out as a full-time freelance writer in 2021. In 2022, my first book, The Wealth Edit Guidebook, was released.

When I’m not working, you can find me at the spa, reading (I meant it when I said "I’d Rather Be Reading"), traveling, painting, watching sports, or being in or on the water somewhere—any beach, lake, pool, or river will do. And, as important as my career is to me, nothing matters more to me than those I fiercely love.
