social media director at Draper James






Lydia Mansel's expertise lies in audience development, story-telling, and creating a consistent message across platforms. Currently heading up Garden & Gun magazine's social media efforts, she resides in Charleston after spending the first four years of her career in New York City. Her Virginia roots, background in online publishing—taking on both full-time and freelance roles at Elite Daily, Vogue, and Travel & Leisure—and experience copy-writing and crafting social and digital stories at Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James created the perfect storm to bring her to Garden & Gun.
