This week is National Women’s Health Week and our #WomanCrushWednesday goes out to the editor-in-chief of Women’s Health Magazine, Liz Plosser. Liz graduated from Princeton cum laude and started her career as an investment banking analyst, before following her dreams and entering the world of publishing! She has spent her media career reporting on health – including mental health – as well as fitness and nutrition. She has experience in both print and digital platforms – she worked at Self and Cosmopolitan, and she has created content for the digital space Well+Good.
Liz is staunchly committed to inclusivity – she believes that having a job in media brings not only the responsibility but also the opportunity to highlight women of all shapes, sizes and colors.
She’s also passionate about mental health – in fact, she made mental health one of the core content pillars of Women’s Health Magazine, after taking over as editor-in-chief about a year and a half ago. Liz believes that in these troubling times, more coverage of issues like depression and eating disorders is warranted. She’d been reading Women’s Health Magazine since it launched in 2003, even though she was working for a competitor at the time!
Liz grew up in the Midwest and met her future husband at Princeton. They live in Brooklyn with their three young kiddos. She’s also is a marathon runner, a triathlete and loves boutique fitness.
