Experience

Amy is a writer, editor, and social media expert who specializes in parenting and women's lifestyle content. Throughout her career, she has worked for NBC Universal, Netflix Family, Disney's Babble, LoveToKnow, and Saylor, a creative content agency. Her work can also be found on Mom.com, CafeMom, ABC News, Yahoo! News, and Good Morning America.

As the designated "fun aunt" in her family, Amy is always on the hunt for the best new toys to spoil her nieces — and the most luxurious items to spoil herself!

When it comes to shopping, she is especially passionate about home decor, makeup, skincare, and anything that promises to combat stress and help her sleep through the night (weighted blankets, essential oils, she's tried it all!).

Amy is also an avid 5-star traveler who spends much of her free time in search of the best deals on the most luxe destinations (much to the delight of friends, family, and readers who reap the rewards of her efforts).

She currently lives in Westchester, NY with her two very spoiled but very adorable rescue cats Bennet and Fitz.
