About the Author

1658_10200282297277726_1664865944_n Kerry O’Grady is formally trained journalist, public relations professional, and integrated marketer. She began her professional career in advertising and business development at The Arizona Republic, Gannett’s flagship newspaper in Phoenix, Arizona. Moving to New York City in 2010, she held numerous positions as a freelance writer and marketer for national websites and magazines. Presently, O’Grady is a marketing manager for Meredith Corporation (American Baby, FamilyFun, and Parents magazines) and an adjunct writing instructor at New York University.

O’Grady holds a B.A. (summa cum laude) in journalism and English from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and an M.S. (with distinction) in public relations and corporate communication from New York University. She also holds an honorary PhD in heartbreak, late 20s dating, navigating friendships, blunt advice, and cringe-worthy social encounters. She has nothing better to do with these latter learnings than write “KerryLeeInTheCity.”

O’Grady currently resides in Queens with two roommates, not enough closet space, and too many microwaveable food items.
