Back when going to the office was a thing, the Fashionista team would sometimes break for an afternoon “stretch and share,” a chance to briefly get away from our screens, move our bodies and share responses to a fun, easy prompt. We realized there’s no reason not to continue doing this in our own homes, and even get our readers involved. So in this series, each of our editors will share a bit about themselves and even suggest a stretch for you to do as well, if you’re so inclined! Last up, Senior Audience Development Manager, Liza Sokol.
Stretch: Interlocking fingers and arms up overhead
Hometown: The Jew-burbs outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Sun/rising/moon signs: Scorpio/Libra/Capricorn
Enneagram Type: 4
How and when did you start working at Fashionista? About four years ago I was looking to get out of engineering and back to my fashion roots and a friend alerted me that Fashionista was looking for an audience development manager. It was a perfect fit.
