Hey there, I'm Laura Brzyski (brisk-ee): a Philly-based writer, fitness enthusiast, and dog lover. Currently, I serve as the founder, managing editor, lead writer of Philly in Motion, a blog about Philadelphia's ever-evolving health and fitness scenes. Before founding Philly in Motion, I was the digital contributor of Be Well Philly, Philadelphia magazine's wellness vertical. With two Master's degrees in Creative Writing and English Literature and eight years of teaching experience, I am strongly skilled in content writing, storytelling, editing, facilitating team success, and managing multiple projects at once.
I believe the most successful teams are made up of individuals who exude the four Cs: creativity, curiosity, charisma, and collaboration. In my eyes, these traits rely on an active commitment to and practice of social justice, coalition building, and empathetic dialogue. In all my professional and personal circles, I strive to be an enthusiastic, dependable, solution-finding leader and team member who welcomes open, honest conversations about team growth and celebrates wins over champagne.
