Experience

Prior to joining the Southern Living family, Turner Spottswood lived in New York City where she worked with Bunny Williams Interior Design as their Office Coordinator. It was in this role where she became infatuated with the behind the scene processes of the creative world - including interior design, writing and photography. She grew up on Mobile Bay, where she spent her summers from sun up to sun down on the pier being immersed in Southern culture (one pots, brandy alexanders and jubilees) and creatures (crabs, pelicans and jellyfish galore). She combines her adoration of the South and love of the creative field through her current position with Southern Living as the Photo Editor Assistant.
