Class of 2018, Double Major in Communication Arts and Digital Journalism

I double majored in Communication Arts and Digital Journalism during my time at MMC. Taking a variety of classes under the communications umbrella - ranging from public speaking and interpersonal communication to journalism and editing courses- gave me skills that I have since applied to various jobs.


I currently work as a digital writer for In Touch Weekly, where I write news stories and evergreen galleries on all things entertainment. I graduated from Marymount Manhattan College in 2018 with a double major in Communication Arts and Digital Journalism. Following graduation, I worked for The Hollywood Reporter for two years as a daily writer and then for The US Sun as an entertainment reporter. In addition to writing for In Touch Weekly, I also freelance for The Hollywood Reporter to help with awards shows and event coverage.
