Q&A with Jen Steele of Cosmopolitan Magazine!

December 23, 2011

Jen Steele(left) w/ Me and friends at the Young Survival Coalition  "In Living Pink" event in 2008

This Friday I wanted to introduce you to an amazing team member of Cosmopolitan Magazine and an editor/stylist I have worked with for many many years. I am not sure when Jen and I first met but when we did we had an instant connection. Jen is such a hard working editor/stylist and has incredible style and a beautiful spirit. I have been working with the team at Cosmopolitan since I started my career (under Deesh now Boy Meets Girl(R)). I even did special Boy Meets Girl(R) wedding bags for Amri Leever Cosmo's Senior Fashion Editor years ago. It is amazing how fast time flies by!
One of the best parts of my job is that I get to work and meet incredibly talented people.
As Jen notes in her Q&A  "I love working with the people in my industry, I love photo shoots and photography. I am often inspired by the people and moments we create together. Seeing the clothes come to life is rad." I completely agree Jen. Check out more about Jen below!
