  • Del turned her black thumb into a green one once she learned how to grow orchids successfully. While Phalaenopsis orchids are among her favorites, she also loves Cattleyas and Vandas.
  • She's a big fan of the series "Diary of an Old Home" and older homes in general.
  • She is especially proud of her work revamping an old and very basic brown dresser into a revamped version, now painted eggshell white and no longer hidden in her closet.


As a feature editor for House Digest, Del has encountered a wide range of topics. Her favorites include gardening, sustainable living, and natural cleaning methods. Her career as a writer began over two decades ago, and she's written and edited for several online publications. She started as a copy editor at The List in 2021 before moving on to Nicki Swift and then Glam.
