Becca is an editor, writer, and writing coach. She is currently the Managing Editor at both The Whole Life Challenge and StrongFirst. She specializes in building authority and readership through high-quality content, whether it be copywriting or blog writing. She also coaches private clients, does developmental editing for non-fiction book projects, and ghostwrites for a variety of story-telling projects she can't tell you anything about (but that are super, super fun).

Her first managing editor position was at Breaking Muscle - a job she earned based on the success of her personal blogging. There, she oversaw a team of writers and editors, and took the site from an average of 900 unique pageviews per day to 205,503 unique pageviews per day - an audience of almost five million readers each month. Her own articles were some of the highest performing on the website. Her latest work as a developmental editor resulted in the sale of Chael Sonnen and Ryan Parson's exercise and nutrition book to Rodale - and this is not the only book she's helped get to this point.

Though she was born with the instinct to write, as a teenager she decided that a career in film and television would be more "practical"(don't ask her the logic behind that). But even while studying filmmaking, she excelled as a writer, having a play produced in undergrad and a script turned into a short film in graduate school. While earning her MFA in Cinema-Television Production at USC, she focused mainly on scriptwriting and editing; both core elements of good story telling and fantastic ways to study story structure.

Becca's obsession with story telling and writing continues to this day. She has taken numerous courses through UCLA's Writers Program, the Attic Writing Institute (Portland, Oregon), LitReactor, and Mediabistro, and is a rabid consumer of books on the writing craft. She writes non-fiction and fiction, in both short and long form. She was nominated for the UCLA Writers Program 2016 Allegra Johnson Prize in Novel Writing and was among the Top 30 in the 2015 Dana Awards for novel writing.

Her first short story was published by concis. Since then she has been published on The Forge and The Citron Review, and has short stories forthcoming in bosque magazine, The Knicknackery, Black Denim Lit, Panorama, and Corium. Her freelance non-fiction writing has appeared in The CrossFit Journal, My Mad Methods, Momtastic, Greatist, MyAthleticLife, The Box, Breaking Muscle, The Whole Life Challenge, and many more.
