About us

Seattle Picks is Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice.  If we can't say anything nice, we don't say it at all.

Seattle Picks is a free, subscription-driven weekly publication, sent out every Friday via email and then updated on our homepage. It’s a fun and sassy format for "City Secrets," delivered in a timely and unique manner to a highly targeted market. Seattle Picks reaches mostly women, busy and well-educated “influencers,” who like to find out about items and services that enhance their lives.

Seattle Picks' founder, Kathi O'Neil, started her career in Manhattan with Hearst Magazines and The Hearst Corporation. A native Oregonian, O'Neil and her husband returned to Portland in the early 90s. There O'Neil started Westover Media, a full-service marketing firm whose partial list of clients includes: Elle, In Style, Lucky, Tom's of Maine, Oprah, Gourmet, The New Yorker, Town and Country, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Conde Nast Traveler, W and Health, to name a few.

Editor-in-Chief Alisa Sloan oversees the content and managing editors in all cities and heads the flagship Portland Picks publication.  Based in Portland, she has been with Westover Media since June of 2005, and brings more than 12 years of experience in publishing, marketing and online content management to the team.
 
Seattle Picks are mostly the unsolicited opinions of the Seattle Picks staff.  They are hints, recommendations, and best-kept secrets about shops, restaurants, hangouts, products, and services.  We sometimes include paid placements which are noted with a "sponsored" banner. Hip Happenings and Events of the Week are always paid placements. Seattle  Picks' parent company, City Picks Group, is a subsidiary of Westover Media, LLC.
