She took her passion for analyzing to a professional route by creating Marvelous Geeks Media in 2011 to write recaps for her favorite TV shows. After growing the website and expanding coverage, she took the reins as the editor-in-chief, where she now writes and edits full-time. Since then, she can also be found writing TV and film features for Xoop and MovieWeb while co-hosting Lady Geeks Society, a romance podcast.
