Linda Kossoff, executive editor
Linda has more than 20 years of experience as an editor and writer in the beauty, health, education and entertainment fields, which includes a seven-year stint as managing editor of DAYSPA. In addition to her executive editor role on DS, she's also a contributor to the University of Southern California's Health Sciences magazines and newsletters, and the owner of Wordwoman Editorial, a content development and project management company. When not huddled over her desk, she can be found prowling vintage clothing stores with her daughter, taking weekend trips to beach resorts with her husband, and getting involved in social and political causes.
Katie O'Reilly, associate editor
Since graduating from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism in 2007, Katie has worked for The Huffington Post and The Onion/A.V. Club, and also has worked abroad teaching English as a Foreign Language. Creative Age Publications marked her first foray into the spa and beauty industries. Now in her third year at DAYSPA, Katie is still passionate about new-fangled spa treatments and sustainable management practices. The rest of the time, she can be found running through Los Angeles, hiking its surrounding hills and trying her hand at writing fiction.
Angela Melero, assistant editor
Before becoming a "spa girl," Angela honed her editing skills at California State University Northridge's campus newspaper the Daily Sundial, where she served as Features editor. After graduating with a Journalism degree, she worked as a staff reporter for the San Fernando Valley Business Journal, covering the local beauty and retail industries. When not hobnobbing with spa pros, Angela can be found feeding her appetite for fancy footwear or immersing herself in crafty DIY projects.
Cristen Wilson, art director
Cristen worked as DAYSPA's assistant art director for seven years, and as art director for its sister magazine, MedEsthetics, for three. She's thrilled to now have the opportunity to be at the helm at DAYSPA. Cristen has a passion for travel and running and, when not engaged in those activities, can usually be found curled up with a good book and a cup of tea.
