Katy Elliott

Katy Elliott is the Personal Stories Editor at Scary Mommy where she commissions freelance pieces. She is always looking for a good story about parenting. Pitch her here.

Katy graduated from The State University of New York at New Paltz with a BFA in Painting and Drawing. With a background in art, it was hard for her to leap into publishing. She started a blog in 2004 (OG blogger!) to profiling her writing and design skills. She got noticed and became the first web editor at House & Garden magazine. Since then she was worked at domino and Fit Pregnancy magazines.

Katy stepped away from publishing for many years to focus on her family. She taught creative process design classes to empower women and build community. Creating art is closely related to storytelling and Katy has a talent for bringing that story out of everyone.

Katy lives in Marblehead, Massachusetts with her two kids. You can find her in her garden chatting with passersby about flowers and life. Or at an estate sale digging through linen closets in search of vintage monogrammed linens.
