I'm Julia, a digital-first lifestyle journalist based in New York City. As a health & wellness reporter for Insider, I write daily about human vices — think sex, relationships, and recreational drug use — and also report on women’s health, fitness, diet culture, and the latest health research.

I also write Insider’s first-ever relationship, sex, and dating advice column, Ask Julia.

I have experience writing reported features, quick news, snappy e-commerce copy, video scripts, and SEO-driven content. Before joining Insider, I held positions as assistant editor at Health.com and e-commerce editor at Dotdash.

I graduated from Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications with a bachelor’s degree in magazine journalism.
