A bit about me...
My career in publishing started at Body Mind Spirit magazine in 1997. I worked on staff there as an editorial assistant; it's where I published my very first article in a national consumer magazine. From there I interned at Marie Claire, a dream opportunity.On staff at Family Circle, a women's general interest magazine, I wrote a medical news column and edited health and nutrition articles. From there I held various positions at other companies such as associate editor, research editor, proofreader, copywriter and marketing specialist.
In 2010 I started a freelance business; my first two clients were the March of Dimes and Patch.com. Not long after, I copyedited pages for Consumer Affairs and fact-checked select chapters of books for National Geographic. This is in addition to proofreading business books for another client and education books for a publisher. It's been a lot of fun. What I enjoy most, though, is writing and editing.
Putting words together is my thing, my jam, my passion. I've been a scribe for 25 years, both on staff and as a freelancer (see writing samples). Though I'm a writer first, I have extracted various editorial skills from every company I've worked at. Besides publishing, my career has zigged and zagged through the corporate world where I have proofread for a law firm, produced newsletters for a global aircraft manufacturer and provided global marketing materials for a hotel company. With an eye for design, I also redesigned a newsletter for a union president. As an editor, I enjoy refining articles written by health experts or company executives.
My goal for clients is the production of clear, consistent and high-quality content. Creativity and ingenuity are also top of mind. My experience includes managing contributors and producing or contributing to reports, presentations, press releases, executive-level letters/speeches, website content and even the big mammoths — Request for Proposals (RFPs).
