Lylah has been an editor in various departments at The Boston Globe since 1994. She writes a monthly column called "Good to Go," about gear and gadgets, for the Globe's Travel section, reviews books for their Living/Arts section, and occasionally writes for their Sunday Magazine, Food, and Sidekick sections. She blogs about her freelance work at Write. Edit. Repeat., and writes The 36-Hour Day here at Work It, Mom! Before coming to Boston, she was an editor at The Post-Standard in Syracuse, N.Y., and a freelancer and general-assignment reporter at The Princeton Packet in her hometown of Princeton, N.J.
Lylah fell in love with Work It, Mom! after she wrote a profile on Nataly for The Boston Globe Magazine. Soon after the piece came out, she and Nataly became friends. Then Lylah started hanging out at Work It, Mom!. Next thing she knew, she was blogging here. Now, she's joined our team as our managing editor.
Among the things she loves about Work It, Mom!, she says, is that working and parenthood aren't presented as an either/or situation, and our members don't blithely insist that women can always "have it all." "Whoever said women can have it all was either lying or not female," she quips. "It's not about having it all. It's about juggling your life. Work It, Mom! gets that."
When she's not at the office or writing, she's holding down the fort at her home on the outskirts of Boston, which she shares with her journalist-extraordinaire husband and their five (yes, five) kids.
