Margaret Wheeler Johnson ’05

Margaret Wheeler Johnson began her editorial career as an extremely ineffective assistant at Vogue. She earned a master’s degree in journalism from the NYU Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute’s Cultural Reporting and Criticism program, then worked as an editor for the parenting site Babble. Duly floored by the cultural and economic force that was the mom blogosphere circa 2010, she went on to Huffington Post Women convinced that women’s personal narratives had power, reach, and deserved as much of a platform as any other stories. In 2013, she joined Bustle, becoming managing editor and then, in 2015, launching Romper, Bustle’s sister site for millennial parents. In 2017, she became Bustle Digital Group’s Director of Features and Brand Initiatives, overseeing editorial content and vision for its digital issues and major editorial packages across Bustle, Romper, Elite Daily and The Zoe Report. All four sites, with a combined reach of over 80 million, give women a platform to tell us who they are. Originally from New Orleans, Wheeler Johnson lives in Manhattan with her wife, two young daughters, and a vizsla named Clay.
