daisy simmons

editorial director

From the mountains of Colorado where she went to college, to the coastline of Santa Cruz where she worked as an environmental canvasser, the beauty of nature has inspired EcoMyths Editorial Director Daisy Simmons to her best work. Transplanted to Chicago, she stays true to her eco-roots personally and professionally. She’s covered the green scene as Chicago Editor for Disney’s Ideal Bite, feature contributor for Mindful Metropolis, lifestyle editor for NBC/Universal, and other media outlets. When not online, she’s biking the lakefront, volunteering for Friends of the Chicago River, or promoting literacy and helping keep books out of landfills as a volunteer at Open Books.
