more about me

Are you a publication looking for fresh, thought-provoking angles on beauty, wellness and/or lifestyle trends? Maybe you’re a new (or established!) brand needing a strong editorial voice on your site’s blog, newsletters or packaging? Was that a “yes!”? Cool—I’d say you’ve come to the right place.

I’m a writer, editor, and content creator with a passion for puns and laugh-out-loud honesty.

Hey, hey! I’m Daley.

Jessie Van Amburg, Senior Food + Health Editor at Well + Good

"I've been working with Daley for four years now, first as colleagues at Family Circle and then in editing her work for Women's Health and Well + Good. She is hardworking and talented, and is exceptionally knowledgeable about the beauty space. She responds well to feedback and consistently turns in clean copy on time. She's a pleasure to work with!" 

"Daley captures our brand voice with a flair of humor, a dash of sass, and always a touch of class and sophistication. I trust her implicitly to create impact with our content."

Angela Jia Kim, Founder of Savor Beauty

"I was incredibly thankful for how easy and pleasant it was to work with Daley! In a fast-paced, digital environment that doesn’t leave tons of room for error, Daley was so quick to learn our brand’s specific style and was even quicker to go above and beyond what was asked of her. She approached any and every assignment with the same high energy and enthusiasm as the last. Daley’s work ethic, voice, and editorial judgment are just a few of the things I admire about her and always will, and I'll always jump at the chance to get to work with her!" 

Theresa Massony, Senior Style Editor at Elite Daily

"Daley is a consummate professional: she’s never missed a deadline (of her own volition!). Whenever there are changes to her assignment (either on my end or on hers!), she is extremely responsive and communicative. Above all, though, she files incredibly clean and smart copy. It’s always a pleasure to work with her, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her for any editorial needs you may have."

Emily Orofino, Senior Beauty Editor at Spotlyte

"Daley’s work for HelloGiggles is invaluable to the site. She always brings fresh ideas to the table, submits smart and clean copy, and is always early to submit assignments. It’s rare to come across such a professional, well-informed, and non-biased beauty reporter like herself—it’s a privilege to work with her."

Pia Velasco, Senior Beauty & Fashion Editor at hellogiggles

“Simply put, Daley is a pure joy—to work with, to be around, pretty much in all aspects of life and work. Her glowing personality shines through in all of her work, which consistently makes for attention-grabbing content. She is one of the most genuine, thoughtful, responsible, and just all-around wonderful individuals I’ve had the pleasure of working with. A truly special—and insanely talented—woman through and through.”

 Lindsay Colameo, Principal Beauty Editor at YouCam

"Working with Daley is always a pleasure! Her positivity and eagerness to take on additional assignments truly sets her apart from other freelance writers — it’s very reassuring to know that Daley will do whatever it takes to get the job done." 

Arielle Franklin, Social Media Editor for Allergan's Regi App
