About Isabel


I am a freelance producer with experience in digital media and podcasting. As a recent Public Policy and Journalism graduate from New York University, I have 3 years of background in writing, producing, and editing news stories for radio broadcasts.


As the former Associate News Director and Business Director for WNYU 89.1 FM, I produced, reported and hosted the award winning podcast, The Rundown.

Currently, I am an editor for Ali Weiss’ Tales of Taboo Podcast, and an assistant brand manager at ACB Creative.

Off duty, I am exploring NYC’s Female Doomsday Prepping Community for my newest podcast, Girls Gone Wiled, coming soon.
