I’m Jennifer Nied, a New York City-based contributing journalist with more than a decade of writing and editing experience. I like to follow an adventure, recover, write, repeat formula. It has taken me to the shores of Lake Como, the formidable peaks in Alberta, vineyards in Oregon, snow-covered slopes in the Sawtooth Mountains, and many more destinations with stories to tell.

I love reporting on and writing about adventure travel, fitness, wellness, spa, and more. My words have appeared in Women’s Health, Marie Claire, Good Housekeeping, Prevention, Southern Living, SELF, The Spa Insider, Apartment Therapy, Budget Travel, Simplemost, and more.

Prior to pivoting to full-time freelance, I was senior digital editor for American Spa magazine. There, I covered the world of wellness, spa, and beauty for spa professionals for four years. I started my career with internships at SELF, InStyle, Marie Claire, Southern Living, and American Salon.

When I’m not at my computer, you can find me training for my next marathon (currently training for the TCS NYC Marathon) or taking my dog for a walk in Central Park, cooking new recipes in my apartment, following fresh snow for snowboarding, and recovering in a spa.
