She has been a key architect in shaping the national conversation about and for millennial women. Over the last 15 years, Shoket brought two major young women’s publications to number one across every platform.

As part of the launch team of CosmoGIRL in 1999, she helped revolutionize teen magazines by talking openly about important emotional issues that weren’t yet addressed by traditional publications. She was the first magazine editor to give Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Issa Rae and Lauren Conrad cover stories, helping them launch highly successful careers. Shoket has appeared regularly on Good Morning America, Today, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, CNN, Access Hollywood, and E! News, and was a guest judge for four seasons on America’s Next Top Model.
