Become the BADASS BABE you were meant to be... Buy THE BIG LIFE


Author + Speaker + Editor-in-Chief + Brand Builder + Squad Leader

I’ve been at the front lines of a revolution in the media industry and in the lives of young women. I am the biggest cheerleader for millennial women.

As editor-in-chief of Seventeen for the better part of a decade, I was able to lead editorial that was authentic to young women’s evolving values, and pushed the boundaries of digital, print and cross-platform content. At CosmoGIRL, I was part of the launch team that broke new territory by talking about the complex, emotional terrain of young women’s lives. I am honored to have been named one of the “Most Powerful US Fashion Magazine Editors” by Forbes.

With my book, The Big Life, and the Badass Babes community, I continue working to shape our national conversation about the power of millennial women.

I’ve been a speaker for SXSW, TEDx, Yale Women’s Leadership Initiative, New York Women in Communications, S.H.E. Summit, Pennsylvania Conference for Women and Massachusetts Conference for Women. I’ve also appeared on Good Morning America, Today, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, CNN, Access Hollywood, and E! News (and had a blast as a guest judge for four seasons on America’s Next Top Model).
