Julie Sprankles

Julie Sprankles is the Deputy Lifestyle Editor at Scary Mommy. She works with an incredible team of writers on coverage pertaining to pregnancy, family life, health and wellness, entertainment, home, sex and relationships, mental health, and more. So, *all.the.things.*

After graduating with a dual Bachelor’s in English and Communications & Theater, Julie cut her teeth in the media industry as an editorial assistant for Charleston Home + Design Magazine. Within a year, she became editor-in-chief, a role which she remained in for five years before shifting into a full-time freelance career so she could pack up her husband, two children, and two oversized rescue dogs to roll around the U.S. in an RV for three years. You may have seen her bylines on Scary Mommy, Bustle, Romper, HuffPost, USA Today, Yahoo, SheKnows, National Geographic, MSN, and more.

When she isn’t glued to the keyboard, Julie enjoys extolling the virtues of the Oxford comma, failing miserably at dance workout videos, and listening to way too many true crime podcasts. Catch her on Twitter @JulieLSprankles.
