Ann Shoket has been a key architect in shaping the national conversation about and for millennial women.
Shoket’s widely-acclaimed book, The Big Life: Embrace the Mess, Work Your Side Hustle, Find a Monumental Relationship, and Become the Badass Babe You Were Meant To Be is a guide for millennial women who are changing what it means to be powerful and successful in the world—for everyone. Forever.
Over the last 15 years, Shoket brought two major young women’s publications to number one across every platform: digital, video, social, and newsstand. As Editor- in-Chief of Seventeen from 2007 to 2014, Shoket repositioned the iconic fashion and beauty brand to dominate as the most relevant voice for its 13 million readers. As part of the launch team of CosmoGIRL in 1999, she helped revolutionize teen magazines by talking openly about important emotional issues that weren’t yet addressed by traditional publications.
Shoket has appeared regularly on Good Morning America, Today, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, CNN, Access Hollywood, and E! News, and she was a guest judge for four seasons on America’s Next Top Model. Forbes has named her one of the ten “Most Powerful Fashion Magazine Editors” in the country.
