In her own words: After interning for Indianapolis Monthly and Chicago magazine, I spent the first few months after graduation applying for all of the jobs and living in my childhood bedroom. I leaped at the chance to work for Meredith Corporation in the fall of 2009, first as a copy editor and now as an associate food editor for the Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Media group. I like traveling, hosting parties and milkshakes.
