Effie’s Work

Effie began her writing career in 2009 with Examiner.com, shortly thereafter applying her talents for Gather.com. She wore many hats for Examiner over the years — including working under the Boston Sex And Relationships vertical before moving onto Celebrity Relationships and Pop Culture. Further adding to her online portfolio, Effie took on opportunities to write for several other clients, including Daily Glow, Bounty Paper Towels, and Verizon FiOS. Over the years, her plate continued to grow and she was offered the chance to write for CBS Boston, where she covered the best in food, drink, entertainment, shopping, and more.

Effie continued to grow with Examiner and set her sights on the Reality TV vertical, after which she began to curate the outlet’s Reality Television page. In April 2014, Effie started writing for The Inquisitr, quickly becoming one of the top writers on the site. She was hired to write celebrity and entertainment news for Starpulse in June 2015 — a role she held for more than a year — writing various viral news and listicles for the site. She became a part of The Inquisitr’s writer development team in August 2015, helping to train new hires and struggling writers for greater success.

Heavy.com hired Effie in May 2017, giving her the opportunity to do more work on breaking news and she has enjoyed writing for the outlet through present day, shifting her focus to entertainment news. In June 2018, she once again took on a larger role at The Inquisitr, when she was hired as the site’s Director of Operations. Effie worked with the site’s management team to streamline daily processes and help the outlet operate efficiently and maintain profitability until she left her position in February 2021. She currently writes freelance for Static Media, a position she’s been in since early 2021. Upon departing The Inquisitr, she felt it was the right moment to pursue her dream and develop her app, beacheo, aiming to help anyone looking to have fun in the sun and sand get the info they need for their day at the beach.
