Before joining WWD, Palmieri served as executive editor of DNR, managing a staff of more than 20. She started her journalism career as an assistant editor for Direct Magazine and also served as New York bureau chief of California Apparel News. A New York City native, Palmieri has a BA in journalism and mass communications from New York University and lives with her husband and American Eskimo dog in the suburbs of the city where she enjoys participating in triathlons.
