Carli is a freelance fashion writer for The Knot. Prior to joining The Knot, Carli worked as the style section editor at Her Campus Media, where she worked with college aged writers from across the country, editing and writing weekly assignments.

While Carli works at a corporate job that she loves during the week, she also loves writing fashion content as her creative outlet. Throughout college, Carli interned at JLM Couture, Her Campus Media, PatBO, and Beachwaver, where she got to sharpen her social media and copywriting skills. She even worked as a bridal consultant for a few years and fell in love with the wedding industry—and got to try on dozens of wedding dresses! Her combined passion for the bridal industry and journalism is what led her to her current freelance role at The Knot.


Carli is a 2022 graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, where she majored in fashion business management and minored in both English and psychology. While in college, she launched the FIT chapter of Her Campus, where she served as the president and founder.
