Tina Smithers Peckham

After eight years living in a closet and working in various cubicles in New York City, Tina returned to her hometown of Kansas City, MO where she moved to a slightly larger loft apartment to work as a full-time freelance writer. Following three years of freelance and two full-time gigs in advertising, Tina recently relocated to Jacksonville, FL with her husband, feisty cat and sweet-natured corgi mix, returning to the world of freelance and coffee shops. In her spare time, Tina enjoys reading autobiographies and gossip magazines while subconsciously looking for typos. She gets really excited-slash-appalled when she finds one. She also finds talking about oneself in third person to be extremely uncomfortable.


Specializing in entertainment, fashion, beauty and lifestyle, Tina has written and reported for a variety of publications and websites including GlamourSeventeenUs Weekly, MTV News, ET Online, Best BodyM Magazine, AOL’s Spinner.com, truTV.com, Crushable.com, Generation Boom and Kansas City's Pitch Weekly. Tina has also assisted with social media, content strategy and editorial for brands and personalities such as Britney Spears, Jordin Sparks, Cher Lloyd, Cody Simpson, Alloy, WE tv, HISTORY Channel, Beauty Brands, 'ZinePak and more.
