A true New Yorker at heart, Francesca Coviello now resides in sunny Delray Beach, Florida in pursuit of a career in lifestyle reporting. As a graduate from The University of Tampa, her educational journey became an outlet of expression where she developed a love for writing and photography. Spending a college semester abroad stimulated Francesca to follow her dreams of traveling, indulging, and sharing with the world. While living in Florence, Italy, she served as a social media correspondent for her home institute and regularly blogged about observances overseas - contributing images, recipes and experiences as a young and excited explorer.
During the final months as a college student, Francesca held an internship with a local entertainment website where she created content, published personal photography and wrote freely for Metromix, Tampa Bay. Working with Metromix provided Francesca a platform into online freelancing, which led to her produce restaurant critiques for www.dinnerreviews.com.
Her recent employment as Studio & Production Coordinator for Montana Pritchard Photography has provided Francesca with great insight into the world of commercial advertising, design and marketing relations. This unique experience allowed her to regularly travel across the country, view her surroundings with a more polished eye and appreciate the creative forces behind editorial and print.
“A Spartan Abroad”
“DinnerReviews.com© is excited about the culinary knowledge and enthusiasm this youthful world traveler brings to our magazine.”
"Francesca proved herself to be a valuable intern with Metromix, bringing creativity and story ideas to the site, interviewing celebrities, executing restaurant reviews, covering events, and even finding her voice on TV and radio. She worked closely observing and assisting our team and became a friend to everyone at WTSP and Metromix in the process.
I greatly appreciate the work she dedicated throughout her internship and have confidence that she will be an asset to any future company. It would be my pleasure to recommend her for any future endeavor."
