Your current Netflix addiction:
I’m currently binge-watching “Catastrophe” on Amazon.
What do you love most about your work?
As the Books Editor at Glamour, I get crates of books in the mail every morning. It’s like Christmas every day.

One piece of advice you would give your 18 year old self:
Be kind to yourself and don’t worry so much about what other people think. And, of course, wear sunscreen.
Midnight snack of choice:
A secret talent we should know about:
Without peeking at the name, I can tell you the make and model of just about every car on the road. Sometimes I get tripped up by Toyotas and Hyundais, but for the most part I’m an automative savant. Meanwhile, I drive a minivan.
Charity/charities you support:
I support Cycle for Survival, which raises money for rare cancers. 100% of the money raised goes to research - and the list of rare cancers is a lot longer than you might think.
The skill or sport you're dying to learn:
If you could “learn” how to be a good dancer, I’d be the first in line. Not that my poor coordination keeps me off the dance floor...
Favorite pizza topping:
Spinach. Fun, right?
Cocktail of choice:
A dark and stormy, preferably imbibed on a roof deck with a view of the ocean.
If you weren't a Books Editor, you'd be a...
Real estate agent. Someone else would have to handle the paperwork, though - I’d be in it for the sales angle.
