Get to Know Team WeKnowTheDj!

July 29, 2013

Have you ever read a WeKnowTheDj article and wondered about the person behind the writing? Or guessed that writing for WeKnowTheDj is a tough job? Well with a team of 10 writers, an editor in chief, and an assistant editor from around the world, things can get a little crazy and stressful, but there’s never a dull moment. We, the writers and editors, decided it’s time to have a little fun-and by that we mean nominate each other for the 2nd Annual WeKnowTheDJ Superlatives. Below you will find a small section about each of us and the winner of the superlative categories.


Born and raised a Southern Belle from South Carolina, Kellie Cox has worked as the Editor-in-Chief for WeKnowTheDJ for almost 3 years. Best known as being sassy, driven, and ‘fun-sized’, Kellie has huge heart and is always giving back to others whenever and as often as she can, hence the “Blonde Scooter” nickname. She obtains her Master’s degree in Communication from University of Phoenix.  Other than a passion for writing, Kellie is obsessed with music, traveling, and animals, having a spoiled rotten Pug named Nixon & a Great Dane named Maggie of her own. For more about Kellie, follow her crazy life on Twitter, @Kellie_Cox! Voted: Best Personality, Most Honest, Bitchiest, and Best Accent.


Meg McQuaide, known by the WeKnowTheDj team as Megs or Big Meg and the occasional “Bella Swan”, is our Assistant Editor, and has been a member of our team for over 2 years. She’s our Jersey girl, but definitely does not have the tan to prove it! She will be turning 21 in 3 weeks, at which time you can refer to her as Captain Megan because you will most likely see her with a Captain and Diet in hand. Meg is entering her senior year at Montclair State University where she is acquiring her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and Public Relations. Contrary to what the writer’s might tell you, Meg spends the majority of her time writing, and can’t accomplish anything without music playing. Despite her incredible awkwardness she loves to meet new people so be sure to follow her on Twitter and Instagram @megmcquaide! Voted: Wittiest, Most Awkward, Clumsiest and Tied for Best Nickname.


Next we have Meg C., more commonly known as Lil Meg. The majority of the team will say that she got her nickname because she’s the younger Meg on Team WeKnowTheDj but she says it’s to make her friendship with Justin Bieber, Lil Twist and Lil Za more legit! Lil Meg is about to start her sophomore year at Rutgers University in New Jersey where she’s studying journalism and communications while attending her fair share of college parties! Academics come first but she’s a big believer in having fun, especially since Big Meg lives so close to her! RU isn’t ready for Team WKTDJ this year! The WeKnowTheDj team has helped Meg make the transition into a better writer but more importantly, a better person. When she joined the team a year ago, she was a shy, cautious girl but now, having been corrupted by Kellie and big Meg, she says it made her a lot better than she used to be! Make sure you follow her on twitter at @megchamp07 and @lilmegwktdj. Voted: Funniest, Sassiest, Hardest Worker, and Tied for Best Nickname.
