Staci Giordullo is a senior writer for Angie’s List, covering the latest and greatest in the List’s home and lifestyle categories. With a focus on real estate, remodeling, garages and doors, she strives to offer insight and advice on buying or selling a home, including home warranties and what upgrades will increase a home's value. Staci graduated with a journalism degree from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University and worked in public relations and as a lifestyle magazine writer/editor before joining Angie’s List in 2007. To stay on her good side, don’t ever let her hear you say “first annual” — it won’t be pretty. When she’s not working, Staci can be found in the backyard playing with her three young children or hiding from them under the covers with a good book and a flashlight.
