Behind glossy photos of celebs, in-depth stories and carefully curated Best of SJ lists are a creative team dedicated to showing off the best that South Jersey has to offer. SJ staffers are always on the go, interviewing experts, taking photos, designing pages and planning those can’t-miss events of the year. You’ve seen their talent explode on these pages, but this month, we’re taking a closer look at them.


Elyse Notarianni

Editorial Assistant
Elyse Notarianni joined SJ Magazine last year as an editorial assistant after working for ESF Camps in marketing. She previously lived in Washington, D.C, where she reported on Congress and wrote for organizations like the US Chamber of Commerce and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. A Scranton, Pa. native, she quickly fell in love with the interesting, charming and sometimes quirky culture in South Jersey – much to the amusement of the rest of the SJ Mag staff, who already knew how great the area is. She currently lives in Cherry Hill with her pup, Thatcher.


Ellen Errichetti

Creative Director
Ellen Errichetti and her husband John were part of the creative team that gave SJ Mag its look in the early years. She had a career in the packaging design and production industry before transitioning to the more interesting work of editorial layout and advertising design. SJ’s creative director since 2016, Ellen loves directing photo shoots that get her out of the office
to places like petting zoos, water parks and banquet halls. She and John live in Medford with their three kids.



Jayne Jacova Feld

Executive Editor
Jayne Jacova Feld feels she was destined to work at SJ Magazine. With the exception of a decade-long foray in New York City, her writing and editing career has always been based in South Jersey, having worked at the Cape May Star and Wave, the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Jewish Community Voice. After returning from that NYC stint, she wrote regularly for these pages for over a decade before being named SJ’s executive editor in 2018. She and her husband Craig live in Cherry Hill with their three boys and dog Auggie.


David Michael Howarth

David Michael Howarth is the adventure-seeking Medford native behind the lens whose photos have been featured in SJ Magazine since its very first issue. Now a Voorhees resident, he loves obstacle course racing, mountain biking and hiking adventures with his wife and 2 kids. He will still go to extremes to get a perfect shot and looks forward to photographing the next big NJ star for the cover of SJ Magazine.


Klein Aleardi

Digital Editor
Klein Aleardi has been part of the SJ Magazine family (literally) for more than a decade. She still remembers helping her mom, SJ Mag Publisher Marianne Aleardi, stuff envelopes in the office at age 9 and making crab cakes with her sisters for a story in middle school. (See p. 70) After graduating with a journalism degree from New York University, Klein worked with the magazine to launch its new website. She returned to NYC for two years and has rejoined the SJ team in an updated role: digital editor. You’ll see her at events – she’s the one who’s always on her phone (she’s making Instagram stories!).

Patty Roman

Event Planner
Patty Roman, SJ’s event planner, is a natural for a job that requires intense attention to every last detail. The South Jersey native was a certified public accountant who switched to bookkeeping when her kids were young. Event planning flowed from there, as her drive to get everything perfect is what makes our events so special. The mother of three grown boys, Patty recently moved to Mount Laurel and enjoys country line dancing.


Kate Morgan

Kate Morgan was born and raised in South Jersey – first in Clementon, then Voorhees. Since her first SJ Mag story ran in October of 2015, she’s written more than 130 of them for these pages. As a staff writer, she’s gone turkey hunting with an NFL star, flew in a 6-seat airplane, dug for fossils, and chatted with legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin (see photo). Her stories now appear in numerous publications including Woman’s Day, the Washington Post, Popular Science, Harper’s Bazaar and, of course, the magazine that made her.
