I’m a senior-level writer and editor and I spend my days creating content about
health, parenting, lifestyle, and more. 

Over the past 10+ years, my work has appeared in or on First for Women, KIWI magazine, Boston magazine, Transitions Abroad, Mommy Poppins, Westchester Magazine, Westchester Home, and more. I have created custom content for brands like Enfamil and worked with nonprofits like Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and the Italian American Studies Association.

Here’s a bit more professional info:
As the senior editor at KIWI magazine, a national parenting mag, I worked in a colorful office in midtown Manhattan, where we covered all things parenting, green living, and organic-food-friendly. While there, I honed my skills as a top-notch editor: I edited stories, sent out assignments, pitched ideas, and helped out with everything from photo shoots to proofing digital newsletters.

I was also the launch editor of one of the first 50 Patch.com sites, back when it was owned by AOL. I learned pretty quickly how to post multiple stories a day, work with a team of freelancers, manage a budget, handle social media, and attend lots (and lots) of town board meetings. I was more organized than I have ever been in my entire life—and the skill stuck.

Along with working in publishing, I've been on the marketing end of things as well: I served as the communications manager at the nonprofit Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, a 150-bed rehabilitation hospital in Westchester County, NY. There, I was able to build on my skills by creating blog posts and updating web content, plus add new ones to the mix, like creating annual reports, writing brochure copy, and assisting with event production—all while keeping the organization’s message and mission top of mind.  

In addition to this, I’ve also been on staff as an editor at First for Women and Westchester Magazine. For my full resume, just send me a note at miallonardo@gmail.com.

Here’s a bit of personal info:
I live just outside NYC in a fixer-upper that my husband and I moved into five years ago. When we got here, there were no outlets in the bathrooms, the wallpaper in the kitchen was three-layers thick, and the shades in the bedroom were straight from 1963. But we found two old typewriters in the basement and I like to think that was fate. We kind of love it here.

I also get the whole parenting thing firsthand: My husband and I are raising a toddler and a baby, which at times feels like raising 10 toddlers and 15 babies. But, as they say, we wouldn’t have it any other way. They are the perfect mix of crazy and magic.
