About Locke

I'm a writer, editor, and wellness expert with almost a decade of experience with brands in the health and lifestyle space.

After starting my career at O, The Oprah Magazine, I’ve worked for Woman’s Day, Shape, Greatist, and WebMD. I’ve also contributed to Women’s Health, Men's Health, SELF, The Today Show, Redbook, Refinery29, and more. (Check out my recent writing here.)

I grew up in sunny Florida, where I developed my love of the outdoors and an active lifestyle.

In 2010, I graduated from the University of Virginia with honors in English. After college, I booked a one-way ticket to New York to pursue a career in journalism. That's also where I discovered my personal passion for health and wellness. Feeling cooped up in an office and my tiny apartment, I started running regularly to clear my mind and escape from the daily grind. I quickly fell in love with the burgeoning fitness scene in NYC, and eventually tackled four half-marathons.

When I took a job as a digital editor at Shape, I was able to combine my two passions — digital media and health content — into one dream career, and I’ve never looked back. 

To expand my own knowledge, I became a certified health coach through Emory University and a certified personal trainer through the American Council of Exercise in 2017. In addition to my editorial work, I also coach individuals and speak at companies to empower people to lead their healthiest and happiest lives.
