Alyssa Giacobbe has been writing and editing for magazines since 1998, when she landed her first job gratefully fetching lattes and editing the Table of Contents as an assistant editor at ELLE. She’s since held staff editing positions at Harper’s Bazaar, InTouch Weekly, Teen Vogue, and Boston, and is currently editor-at-large for DuJour. Her work has been recognized by the National Health Information Awards and the Rhode Island Press Association and has appeared in a wide range of publications that also include InStyle, New York, Details, Self, Elle Decor, Women's Health, T: The New York Times Style magazine, and the Boston Globe Magazine. She considers herself a true generalist—in addition to travel assignments that have taken her from Rwanda to Tel Aviv, Vancouver to the Moroccan Sahara, she has co-authored two books in the field of fashion, writes often about both food and feminism, and, thanks to a longtime health and fitness beat, knows more about manboobs than any woman should. She lives in a beach town north of Boston with her husband, stepson, and a couple of cats.
