Gritstyle

I joined the Gritstyle.com team in January 2015. The editors of the site originally discovered me through an application I submitted for a role in beauty editorial. After offering the beauty contributor position to another amazing candidate, they asked me if I wanted to join in their initiative to rebrand their lifestyle and culture section.

I was able to cover special interest topics in both London and Boston, and we launched my “Jen Tries” series during summer 2015. This allows me to step out of my comfort zone by trying an activity I’ve never done before, and then writing about it.
