Formerly a relationships editor for Verily, Maria is thankful for all the epic dating fails of her past, as they propelled her to consume all the relationship books in reach. She currently lives in an artsy old river town called Cincinnati with her husband and two small boys.
Reach out to her on Instagram at @mariawalleywrites or Twitter @mariacwalley. She loves talking about the human heart, tech startups, content strategy, bourbon, and that one book she's writing.
