Writer and editor specializing in travel, dating, personal finance, personal essay, and lifestyle topics.

Hello! Below, you'll find a small sampling of my work, organized by category.
I’m a writer and editor specializing in travel, dating, personal finance, personal essay, and lifestyle topics.

I write for Bustle, as well as freelance regularly for various outlets, such as Business Insider.
***Note: One of my recent Business Insider money articles has gotten more than 1 million views (see link below).***

My writing has also appeared in places such as Forbes, Yahoo, MSN, INSIDER, Marie Claire UK, xoJane, Scary Mommy, Elite Daily,
Purple Clover, the L.A. Times, the Chicago Tribune's RedEye, The Daily Dot, HelloGiggles, LearnVest, and Simplemost.

In addition, I’ve had feel-good nonfiction stories published in several Chicken Soup for the Soul anthologies.

You can contact me at [email protected] regarding work-related topics — or just to say hi. :)

P.S. As a digital nomad, I blog about travel at NomadicNatalia.com (see link below).
See you on the road!
