Kelly Schremph

Kelly Schremph is an Entertainment and Lifestyle writer for Scary Mommy. She regularly pitches article and feature ideas to her editor pertaining to parenthood, pregnancy, family, movies, TV, and all things pop culture.

After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Communication Studies (as well as a minor in Theater), Kelly set her sights on moving to New York City. She made her first byline while interning for, which led to other freelance gigs for outlets, such as Us Weekly, Refinery29, BuddyTV, and NYC Monthly. However, the bulk of her writing career has been tied to BDG Media, where she’s worn many hats over the last nine years, from serving as an Entertainment News and TV writer for Bustle to becoming the Associate TV Editor for Romper. Since then, Kelly has moved to California with her husband, started a family, and shifted back to freelancing, this time for Scary Mommy.

When Kelly isn't watching TV (or writing about it), she's probably spending time with the two great loves her life: her son, Chris, (who is a full-blown toddler now, thank you for your thoughts at this time) and her yellow lab, Luna, who is almost 5 but remains a puppy at heart. You can follow Kelly on Twitter @Kellybean0415 or check out her LinkedIn page.
