Amelia Edelman began her career as a speechwriter at New York University, during which she attended graduate school to earn her Master's in English and American literature. She then spent four years leading communications and publications for Phoenix House, the nation's largest drug and alcohol treatment nonprofit.

Amelia subsequently joined the team of Content Editors at Refinery29, covering health and wellness, travel and lifestyle, work and money, news and politics, and sponsored/branded content. She worked on the launch of the company's international style guide and trainings as well as its Radical Inclusivity Guide. In 2017, she was promoted to Lifestyle Editor before being recruited by SheKnows to fill the role of Senior Editor of Parenting. There, Amelia led and expanded the site's family-focused content, spoke at acclaimed national BlogHer conferences, and created multiple brand-aligned edit packages, including Mom Voyage, a series of city guides for traveling parents.

In 2021, Amelia joined Meredith Corporation to build the company's cross-brand Finance Desk from the ground up, hiring and helming a team to inaugurate personal finance content on Real Simple, Better Homes and Gardens, Health, and Parents. While managing staff writers, 130 freelancers, and cross-brand editorial growth, she also launched five editorial packages for sales alignment and contributed to additional Meredith brands including InStyle and Travel + Leisure.

After the Dotdash Meredith merger, Amelia transitioned to lead the Verywell Family brand, mission, and strategy as Assistant General Manager. There, she managed the team of editors and drove content production, budget oversight, and operations for the publication while also serving as the internal expert on industry trends in parenting.

In mid-2022, Amelia returned to the Parents brand once again, this time to enact new leadership and strategy as Senior Editorial Director. She is excited to build upon her years of expertise in editorial and business support for parenting content—particularly stories about (and service for) all the diverse forms that family and parenthood take today.


Amelia received her Bachelor's in English and Art History from Vassar College and her Master's in English from New York University. She also studied at St. Andrews University in Scotland, the Center for Book Arts in NYC, and the 92nd Street Y's Unterberg Poetry Center.
