Quartz correspondent Avins is departing
Jenni Avins, the senior lifestyle correspondent at Quartz, is leaving the publication.
“It’s been an honor since 2014 to work with the smartest, sweetest, and silliest journalists in the game,” she wrote on Twitter.
Avins was the founding writer of the Quartzy newsletter. Before joining Quartz in 2014, she covered fashion, food, travel, and pop culture as a freelancer for The Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, Vice, Harper’s Bazaar, Saveur, Style.com, and the Cut, where she was a contributing editor.
The Webby Awards and McCormick Foundation have honored her independent stories and videos about fashion.
Prior to journalism, she worked with knitwear factories in Peru for Edun and studied at University of California-Santa Barbara and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
