Everyone has his or her “go-to” websites that check everyday religiously. Chances are, Refinery29 is on that list. This website geared towards empowering women to look and feel their best bolsters thirty million unique visitors per year.
Jessica Teves is the managing editor at Refinery29. Unlike many fashion editors, Jessica’s path to her position was somewhat nontraditional. As a Rollins College alum, Jessica majored in anthropology. When she struggled to find a job out of college, Jessica started working for a non-profit writing their educational literature. While it may not be the “typical” first job for a fashion editor, Jessica parlayed her experience there into fashion. She learned the importance of working hard, making mistakes and staying on brand.

Thanks so much to Jessica for taking time to chat with us!
