Cecilia Levine

Managing Editor, New Jersey clevine@dailyvoice.com

Cecilia Levine’s career in journalism began her junior year at Pace University. While writing for the university's paper, she helped shed light on campus problems and, despite facing adversity on campus, couldn't see herself doing anything but reporting. The West Hartford Conn. native graduated in 2014, and began working for NorthJersey.com weeklies in Essex County. It was there that she launched a health column profiling locals battling serious illnesses, helped impact change to the local animal shelter and earned an NJPA award for health writing. Cecilia started off as a reporter for Daily Voice when the company launched its New Jersey pod in Summer 2015, and has since worked her way up to become the managing editor. She is proud to now call Bergen County "home.”
