Melissa Malamut

Health editor, Boston magazine

Melissa started as the health editor at Boston in September 2012. But this is her second time around the office. She first started her magazine career here as a fact-checker in 2005. She also worked as a reporter/fact-checker at ESPN The Magazine and her writing has appeared in Marie Claire, Miami New Times, CBSSports.com, and more. Melissa is a Massachusetts native but spent half her life in South Florida. She loves all things Boston and the Florida Gators, and has an argument about how she can love both the Red Sox and the Marlins that will knock your socks off. Her book, She's Got Game was published by St. Martin's Press in 2010. Melissa is also certified to teach Pilates.
