Title: Social Media Director
Education: Washington University in St. Louis, B.S. in Comparative Arts

Marietta is currently Shape's social media director and she has worked with the brand since 2015. Prior to that, she worked as a digital strategist for brands in the health and wellness space, a writer for various magazines, and led the Her Campus chapter at her college, Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

Marietta loves memes and puns just as much as saying yes to spontaneous adventures (including a 45-mile race in Africa). In her spare time, you'll find her unplugged making jewelry out of sea glass she finds on New Jersey beaches.
