Tsotsis was born in 1982. She attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, and then worked in New York for four years in the media business, also attending classes at New York University on the side. She then worked at LA Weekly (in Los Angeles) and after that at SF Weekly (in San Francisco, California). In 2010, she joined TechCrunch. On February 27, 2012, Tsotsis became co-editor of TechCrunch along with Eric Eldon. The pair of them replaced Erick Schonfeld. This was one of the last of a string of departures that had rocked the publication for the months since Michael Arrington's departure in late September 2011.
Tsotsis was named among the Forbes 30 under 30 in the media category in 2011. In August 2012, Business Insider published a detailed look at a day in the life of Tsotsis in her role as co-editor of TechCrunch. A video interview of Tsotsis by David Prager was broadcast on Revision3. Her approach to news coverage was also discussed in an article on the website of the Poynter Institute.
