She graduated from Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts, in 1933 and returned to New York, where she embarked on a career as a journalist and a successful writer of short stories for Redbook, Cosmopolitan, and other women's magazines.

She worked for Vogue magazine in the 1940s, and was Copy Editor and Managing Editor of Glamour magazine in the 1960s and early 1970s. She retired to Florida in 1973. She passed away in Coral Gables, Florida on December 20, 1983.
