Mandie DeCamp

Work or writing background leading to expertise

When Executive Producer Mandie DeCamp is not in Us Weekly’s video studio, she can be found in Brooklyn, New York, with her rescue dog, Pepper, and her husband, Geoffrey, likely watching Bravo or Netflix with a glass of Vanderpump Rosé or Ramona Singer’s Pinot Grig. Besides binge-watching reality television or vintage episodes of Mad Men, (Betty Draper is her idol), she also enjoys cooking, crafting or heading to the dog park.

 

Education

Mandie was a journalism major at Hofstra University.

Work history

Mandie got her start as an intern at Brides and Details magazines. In 2008, she started her television and video career at Rachael Ray’s daytime talk show in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. She worked on everything under the sun, including heartwarming stories, makeovers, DIY segments, and of course, food! A career highlight for her was getting to go to the White House garden to watch Ray cook with former first lady Michelle Obama.

After seven years, she went on to work as a producer at Food Network’s The Kitchen in Montclair, New Jersey, where she worked with celebrity chefs and hosts like Jeff Mauro, Sunny Anderson, Geoffrey Zakarian and Katie Lee. She spent two years channeling her inner Martha Stewart to become an expert in food crafts, cakes, appetizers, DIY hacks (did you know you could dye an Easter egg with a silk neck scarf?) and more.
