Having worked on staff at national magazines such as Family Circle and Body Mind Spirit, I have a good idea of what editors are looking for. In total, I’ve spent more than seven years at glossies — that’s including my internship at Marie Claire.
My number one job as an editorial professional is to make busy editors’ lives easier. Throughout the years I’ve done every aspect of editorial work. You can find my bylined articles in publications such as Family Circle, Body Mind Spirit, Arthritis Today, patch.com, Be Well, Vision Monday, W2W magazine,and more. I've verified facts in consumer magazine and newsletter articles, and copyedited education books, business books as well as corporate marketing materials for a number of freelance clients. So when you hire me as your writer, for example, you also get a fact-checker/researcher and copyeditor to boot.
But that’s not all. I’ve sharpened my pencils and stocked up on my red pens to proofread for a law firm, produce newsletters for a global aircraft manufacturer and provide editorial consultation for a nonprofit health organization’s website redesign. I may not have traveled the world, but I have traveled a bit between both consumer publishing editorial departments and Fortune 500 marketing/communications departments, which lends a greater versatility to what I can offer clients.
For my corporate clients, my goal is the production of clear, consistent and high-quality content. I’ll help your organization with projects of all sizes, whether it's taking over a component of a project that you just don't have time for, or want to delegate, or managing a project from start to completion. My experience includes managing contributors during the production of newsletters/website content, and producing or contributing to reports, presentations, press releases, executive-level letters/speeches, website content and even the big mammoths — Request for Proposals (RFPs).
