Highlights

For over 15 years, Cecily McAndrews has written and edited content on a wide range of topics, including food, health, nutrition, and parenting. This experience has given her excellent cocktail party trivia tidbits (did you know all bananas are clones of one another?), and strong opinions on products and health trends. This desire to cut through marketing and misinformation informs her work as Commerce Editorial Director, Health Group, where she helps readers choose the best products for their needs.

Experience

Cecily has written for publications such as Real Simple, Food Network Magazine, Rachael Ray Every Day, and Parade Magazine. She’s edited books on topics as varied as creating wire jewelry, following a Mediterranean diet, and making pickles. Becoming a parent has made her a more careful consumer of health and home products, and also especially attuned to the importance of self-care.

Education

She holds a BA in English and French from Mount Holyoke College, and a culinary degree from the Institute of Culinary Education.
