In college, Becki was a News Editor for The Harvard Crimson and covered the crime beat. While in graduate school she started a food and wellness blog, which ran from 2011 to 2018, and eventually became a certified personal trainer. After three years in the fitness industry, Becki re-entered academia and started writing for The List and Mashed in her spare time. She ultimately began editing for The List and other Static Media brands full-time and worked for a short time on the scripting team. After taking a break from the freelance world to get married and start a family, Becki returned to writing for The List and joined the Daily Meal team in 2022.


Becki has a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Harvard University and a master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Boston College.
