Elizabeth began her career working in fashion PR before quickly pivoting to the editorial side, where she’s enjoyed a lengthy career writing for some of the biggest brands and publications on the internet, including The Knot Worldwide, Forbes Vetted, TIME, Brides, Betches, Good Housekeeping, Elle Decor, Veranda, Redbook, Woman’s Day and many more. Her own whimsical South Carolina wedding was featured in Charleston Weddings Magazine in 2016, and she’s covered the industry extensively as a former contributor at Brides for two years and now The Knot. 

Elizabeth specializes in commerce content and loves curating a good gift guide, best list or shopping roundup. She currently lives in Los Angeles by the beach with her husband, two dogs and three young children.


Elizabeth graduated from NYU with a degree in Media, Marketing and Communications. After interning at one of the biggest fashion PR agencies in the city, with clients like Alexander Wang and Bonpoint, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her PR dream. One year in, she realized writing was her true passion and thus her freelance career was born. She began writing for The Fashion Spot and quickly gained an impressive client list, including SheKnows and Brides, where she contributed service content for years. 

After having her first baby in 2017, she took a couple years off to do the whole stay at home mom thing. When her second was a few months old, she accepted an opportunity as a Senior Copywriter for a luxury kids’ clothing subscription service company, where she worked on everything from email marketing and social media content to landing pages, SMS messages and more. 

Once her third came along, she took another short hiatus and near the year mark, decided to jump back into the editorial world, landing clients like Maisonette, Forbes Vetted, TIME Shopping, Hearst and Today’s Parent, to name a few. 


Elizabeth attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she majored in Journalism and Mass Communications. During her junior year she transferred to NYU, taking classes two days a week and interneting at Bismarck Phillips, a well-respected luxury fashion and beauty PR agency, the other three. She graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Media, Marketing and Communications.
