Dallas contributor Whitney Harris
Whitney Harris

Whitney Harris moved from Brooklyn to Dallas last summer and can barely remember life before the Katy Trail and Klyde Warren Park. After graduating with a B.A. in English from the University of Pennsylvania, she worked as a nonfiction book editor at an independent publishing house and then as deputy editor of a Manhattan family magazine. She was most recently Dallas editor of the now sorely missed women's lifestyle website DailyCandy.

In addition to CultureMap, she writes for Dallas Child, North Texas Child, Fort Worth Child, StrollerTraffic and Birchbox. She lives in Northeast Dallas with her lawyer husband and an insanely affectionate vizsla puppy. In her free time she can be found hanging out at Mutts, running around White Rock Lake or scoping out her next meal anywhere food trucks tend to park.
