Editor, Career Advice

On a day-to-day basis, I get all our content up on Levo.com. But in between sifting through WordPress and Asana, I dabble in putting together our Newsletters and doing a little coding on the side. (Oh, I'm also the girl in the Thinking Talents app.)

No matter what I’m reading, my mind is constantly in editing mode. When I need to give my brain a break, you can find me running along the Hudson, searching for the best cupcake in NYC, or watching a rousing game of soccer. And I’ll leave you with this: There’s no “s” on toward.

My Big Career Moment

Getting Promoted

After working for a year as Editorial Assistant at Levo, I proved to the team that I was capable of taking on more responsibility. Working on a small team, I learned we were all truly in it together and that there's always an opportunity to learn more.

I'm not afraid to say it: I love Taylor Swift. It all started with a few lyrics, “And I don’t know why, but with you I’d dance in a storm in my best dress. Fearless.” I can’t explain it, but these lyrics spoke to me, and I wanted to know more.

Volunteer Work

Whether it's picking up trash along the side of a highway or coaching a youth soccer camp, I've always enjoyed donating my time to a worthy cause. But my favorite volunteer work has been helping out at cat shelters. The adorable animals always bring a smile to my face.

We’ve all been there, even if you don’t want to admit it. It’s life. And take it from someone who usually has great composure in a professional setting. You can try as hard as you want, bottle it all in, throw on some peppy tunes, but sometimes you just can’t help losing it a bit at work.

Bachelor of Science, Magazine Journalism

In addition to studying magazine journalism at the SI Newhouse School of Public Communications, I also studied Marketing and Mathematics. Syracuse helped me explore my passions through extracurriculars, and to this day, my experience working at 360 Degrees magazine is one of my favorite moments of college.
