Nicole McDermott After graduating from Syracuse where Nicole studied magazine journalism and nutrition, she moved to the Big Apple to write for the health and fitness media startup Greatist. After learning a ton about the space — from kangoo to kefir — and with long hikes, clean air, and quiet in her sights, she decided to up and leave for greener pastures (i.e. a log cabin in the middle of the woods in Canada). Nicole has always had a strong interest in wellness, fitness, and overall happiness and enjoys digging through studies to get down to the bottom of a pressing health question. Nicole's work has appeared on TIME Healthland, SHAPE, USA Today, Men's Fitness, The Huffington Post, Refinery 29, and Lifehacker, among others.
