About

Laura Hine

I’ve spent the last ten years as an Editor-in-Chief at three different magazines. I got my start at Make it Better (now called Better), then moved to Modern Luxury where I headed up NS. After leaving the North Shore of Chicago and suburban life for downtown Chicago and city life, I became Executive Editor at CS and Editor-In-Chief of Interiors Chicago. I love all things style and design, plus my family and I are huge foodies, so exploring those interests as a writer and editor has been terrific fun. My husband and I have three kids—two in graduate school and one working—and we’re building a second home in Park City, UT. Connect with me on the social media platforms below.

I’m a freelance writer and speaker specializing in communication, relationships and lifestyle. I wrote the award winning Sex & the Suburbs column for Make it Better for ten years and have been a frequent contributor to the Modern Luxury family of magazines, among others. I’ve worn a lot of hats in my career including marketer, corporate trainer, actor and two-time mom. Now an empty nester, my husband and I split time between downtown Chicago and Bonita Springs, Florida. I also blog about the adventures of aging up over at marjiememo.com.
