My name is Katherine Speller (or Katie) and I’m an editor, writer, researcher and journalist from the Hudson Valley. I like trees, witchcraft, sleeping late and meeting/greeting dogs on the street.

My articles and essays on feminism, social issues, politics, technology, sex, relationships, astrology and pop culture have appeared in Women’s Health, The Daily Dot, WNYC, Public Radio International (PRI), MTV News,  BustleMedium, Lady Parts Justice League and more.

I’m currently the Health & Sex Editor for SheKnows, a lifestyle site for millennial and Gen X parents and am working on my first book — a guide to anxiety and depression for teens and young adults.

You can also subscribe to my newsletter I Defy You, Stars — where I talk about astrology, tarot, mental health and ~healing~ on a semi-regular basis.
