Brit + Co
In January 2016, I started working with Brit + Co as a weekday freelance entertainment writer. I cover the latest news when it comes to TV, movies, and music as well as celebrities. I also create evergreen content related to popular entertainment topics.
I have written over 3,500 posts for Brit + Co with more coming every weekday.
Ripley's Believe It or Not!
In October 2017, I started contributing weird news pieces for Ripley's Believe It or Not!
My articles have not only been published on the Ripley's website, a select few have also been used as scripts for YouTube videos.

In October 2008, I created an online column for Shameless Magazine called Shameless Women which profiled positive female role models for young women. Over two and a half years I interviewed over 60 women from different professions, causes, backgrounds, ethnicities, orientations, and anything/everything else. I ended the column in March 2011.
During my time at Shameless Magazine, I also wrote articles / posts on various topics relevant to "girls who get it." Along with appearing on the website, many of my pieces were also featured in the print version of the magazine.
