About the Team

Get to know the writers and editors of Prefit's blog, I Heart Prefit. 

Alley is an editorial intern at Prefit.com, as well as a self-proclaimed cupcake connoisseur with an unbridled passion for crafting. When she’s not curating Pinterest recipes or binge watching House Hunters and Fixer Upper, you can probably find her at a concert or at home tending to her beloved cat, Hedwig.

Allie is a contributing writer for Prefit.com. She's a wannabe Joanna Gaines (who isn't?), and her husband is very much a fix-it-man Chip. Together they’re making over their recently purchased '90s ranch. One of Allie’s most prized possessions is her ice-blue mixer, and she firmly believes a homemade cake can solve a multitude of problems.

Beth is the managing editor for photography at Prefit.com. She's been in love with home design ever since her mother took her to her first home tour at age 2 and wants to get the story behind every gorgeous space. She's working on lovingly -- and slowly -- updating her own hundred-year-old Queen Anne bungalow.

Bridget is the online editor for Prefit Magazine . When she's not covering the latest in swoon-worthy decor trends, you can find her organizing her barmoire (an old armoire turned home bar), filling her tiny NYC apartment with metallic accessories or getting lost in a bookstore.

Chelsea is an assistant editor at Prefit.com. She adores cozy, traditional spaces à la Meg Ryan's brownstone in You've Got Mail and owns an embarrassing amount of vintage flower vases. In her spare time you'll find her up to her elbows in potting soil, lost in a good book or on the hunt for creative, affordable ways to fill the 9-foot-tall walls in her apartment.

Chrissy is a contributing writer for Prefit.com. When she's not scrolling through social media getting major interior envy, she's stopping in stores throughout NYC looking for the latest local designers who are making awesome things. With a collection of foreign edition books and a love of minimalist design, she's always searching for new ways to style her space.

Danasia Fantastic is a contributing writer for Prefit and Travel Channel. Danasia can normally be found at a coffee shop writing for Prefit or for her travel and design blog,  She spends her weekends shopping for vintage home decor at thrift stores and looking for affordable international flights on her phone.

David is an editor for Prefit.com. Some of his past pursuits include working for the book publishing division of a Southern media company, writing about music and entertainment for an alternative newsweekly and doing PR and media-related stuff for an indie interactive-games developer. He currently resides in a 19th-century foursquare which he and his wife are gradually renovating, thereby − though not entirely by design − adopting Prefit's lifestyle credo: "Live the brand."

Erica is a straight-talking interior designer who recently moved from Brooklyn to LA. On the weekends, you can find her scouring local flea markets for her clients or hard at work on her "remedial" DIY projects. She loves anything and everything vintage and collects wallpaper swatches like they were family photos (much to the dismay of her actual family). She lives with her husband and her basset hound, Oliver, in a midcentury home that they are currently renovating.

Farima is a writer for Prefit.com. She has a passion for fashion, enjoys time with her rambunctious Yorkie, Rosie, and is a self-proclaimed foodie. She loves any excuse to throw a party (Arbor Day celebration, anyone?) in her midcentury modern style home.

Katie is a contributing writer and standing liaison to designers for Prefit.com. She's fascinated by all things pop culture (#MovieHomes), and when she's not scouting the latest decor trends, you'll find her getting the behind-the-scenes scoop on designers and their projects.

Kayla is a managing editor for Prefit.com and TravelChannel.com. Kayla resides in the historic Old Fourth Ward (O4W) neighborhood of Atlanta with her husband and two adopted cats. When she's not writing, you can find her walking the BeltLine in search of food, playing on Edgewood Avenue or drinking a glass of wine at a weekend festival.

Kelly is the editorial director for Prefit.com, DIYNetwork.com, TravelChannel.com and GreatAmericanCountry.com. A master gardener, she focuses on growing vegetables and loves canning and preserving. Kelly also spends her time hiking, backpacking and doing almost anything else outdoors. She likes eclectic design where everything has a story. 

Keri is an assistant editor at Prefit.com and an aspiring Renaissance woman. Favorite activites include scouring the web for new design ideas, continuing her quest for the world’s greatest barbecue or scoring deals at local thrift stores. She's a haggler extraordinaire, a vagabond wannabe and a lousy cook (but learning!). 

Lauren is a contributing writer to Prefit.com. After spending the first years of her career at Redbook , covering everything from entertainment and entertaining to health and travel, she now covers those beats (and contributes personal essays and pop culture pieces) around the web and in print. You can find some of her recent clips  .

Liz is a special projects managing editor for Prefit.com and is the co-editor-in-chief of the I Heart Prefit blog. She lives in a midcentury tri-level that she's (slowly) remodeling alongside her husband and her mystery-breed puppy. Other interests include: Mad scientist-style recipe experiments, impractical hats and anything Danish modern.  

Louis Baragona is a Brooklyn-based contributing writer for Prefit.com's I Heart Prefit blog with an affinity for baby's breath, throw pillows and anything gold or shiny. When not playing a low-stakes version of House Hunters by lustfully admiring apartments and Airbnbs online, Louis can be found Tweeting about his many misadventures, checking out his options on Seamless and wondering why he covered his room in white furniture and accessories.

Maria is a contributing writer for I Heart Prefit and Prefit.com. She's a self-proclaimed astrology guru and turns to the stars for all major design and decor decisions. When she's not writing about all-things wedding, she's busy planning her own.

Molly is the Apple News editor for Prefit, Travel Channel and Food Network. She enjoys writing about fashion, travel and home decor on her personal blog, , and on I Heart Prefit . Molly owns an inordinate amount of rattan furniture and brass decor, much to her husband’s dismay, and refuses to stop buying more. For her, a weekend well-spent includes enjoying a cocktail on a patio, leisurely walks downtown and quality time with her miniature dachshund.

Ryan is an editor at Prefit.com. He's a Maryland native with a passion for double porches, bourbon and Fixer Upper.  When he's not channeling his inner-Chip Gaines around the house, he enjoys traveling, eating barbecue and chasing after his two adopted dogs.

Shannon is a managing editor at Prefit.com, a new homeowner and an obsessive organizer. (Friends fans would call her “a Monica.”) In her spare time, she’s slowly decorating her '80s ranch house with a mix of budget purchases and free vintage finds from her grandmother's garage. Her other hobbies include traveling, hiking, cooking, and playing with her two rescue Chihuahuas.
