Ruby is a New York-based associate commerce fashion editor from California. She was formerly a commerce reporter at the New York Post where she focused on buying guides, reviews, and commerce video creation. Ruby’s further bylines have appeared in Page Six, Teen Vogue, Decider, and Dressember. Her prior positions include being a beauty and wellness writer for Her Campus, executive editor at L.A. Style Magazine, and managing editor at Suggest.

While Ruby’s career has lended her to the commerce space, her love for beauty, style, and general shopping extends far beyond. No matter what she’s on the hunt for, she does her research, searches for deals, checks celebrity-approval, and reports back to her friends and family with an honest product review. Therefore, shopping for a living is a dream come true.


Ruby graduated from Azusa Pacific University Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor's degree in multimedia journalism and a minor in public relations. During her studies, she focused on both digital and print media with a focus on editorial writing and editing.

There, she was honored with a top scholar award for highest class ranking in the communication department. She was also a part of the National Honor Society in Journalism and Mass Communication, National Communication Association Honor Society, National Society of Leadership and Success, and Public Relations Student Society of America. Ruby also served as the editor-in-chief and managing editor of the university's news program.
