Jessica is a contributing writer at The Knot Worldwide, where she writes commerce, style and beauty content. She has been working as a freelance writer for more than six years and has contributed to many different online publications. She mainly covers women’s lifestyle, specifically parenting, weddings, entertainment, wellness, commerce, health and food. No matter what she is writing about, she is committed to creating helpful, entertaining and interesting content.
Jessica lives on Long Island, New York with her husband, two young daughters and two black cats. When she’s not writing, she loves spending as much time at the beach as possible, going for walks, reading and cooking.
Jessica first knew she wanted to become a magazine editor when she started working on her high school newspaper and literary magazine during her freshman year. In college she was determined to go after her dream, but once she graduated, she found that the journalism landscape had changed immensely and writing for online publications rather than print seemed to be the most logical choice. After a few internships, she got a job as an editorial assistant at the now defunct Gurl.com, where she worked for over seven years. During that time, she worked her way up to editor in chief and got to work with an amazing team.
When Jessica got laid off from Gurl.com in 2017, she immediately started freelance writing and the job stuck with her. In the last six years, Jessica has worked as a part-time lifestyles writer at Bustle and Romper. She has regularly contributed to so many different media outlets that she has trouble keeping track of them, including Cosmopolitan, Redbook, Delish, Refinery 29, The Daily Beast, Reviewed, Parents, Parade, Forbes, People, Brides and Scary Mommy. Today she covers wedding content for The Knot and other wedding brands.
Jessica attended Hofstra University, where she majored in print journalism. During college, she did an internship at Redbook before doing a second internship at Us Weekly and then a third one at HollywoodLife.com. She graduated in 2009.
