Theresa is the Senior Manager of Editorial Operations at Bustle Digital Group, overseeing large-scale editorial projects, initiatives, content planning, and more across the company’s sites — Bustle, Elite Daily, NYLON, The Zoe Report, Romper, Scary Mommy, Fatherly, Inverse, Mic, Gawker, and W Magazine. She also manages the editorial components of some business development partnerships and liaises with BDG’s sales team on editorial campaigns.
A seasoned digital editorial veteran, Theresa was previously the Senior Lifestyle & Wellness Editor at POPSUGAR, where she oversaw the day-to-day editorial strategy and operations for the vertical and its subsections: astrology, tech, mental health, food, relationships, sex, travel, social media, and more. Before POPSUGAR, Theresa was the Senior Style Editor at Elite Daily. She oversaw Elite Daily's Fashion and Beauty verticals, where she covered, assigned, and edited all fashion and beauty content and made dumb jokes in every article. She also styled and oversaw the fashion market work for some Elite Daily photo shoots and hosted two beauty-related Elite Daily social media series, Blend & Snap and Ready in 5. She made dumb jokes in those, too.
Theresa has also held roles as a copy editor, a dating editor, and a beauty editor. She graduated with a psychology degree from the University of Alabama, and she’s a Scorpio Sun, Cancer Rising, and an Aries Moon — the definition of astrological chaotic good. She lives in the tristate area with her girlfriend and the pair’s puppy Gordo, a perfect, smelly, little nugget. When not working, she’s likely watching a cult documentary, dissecting TikTok lesbian drama, or squishing Gordo’s lil face while saying, “YOU’RE PERFECT AND I LOVE YOU.” Follow her and Gordo on Instagram @theresamassony and @gordothecavapoo, and on TikTok @theresa_lol.
