My expertise is in nonfiction writing and editing, backed by years of experience as a journalist and researcher. I also have extensive experience creating and writing marketing and fundraising materials for nonprofits.
My interests include fashion,...
My mission is to connect people with information that can change their lives. Storytelling is the most powerful way to forge that connection, and I have been telling stories professionally for more than 15 years.
I have more than a decade of experience as a reporter and editor for daily newspapers in Upstate New York and Richmond, Va. Before graduating from college, I worked for the Associated Press. In addition, I have been the writer in residence for chapters of two national nonprofits. As a freelancer, I have written resumes, newsletters, press releases, PR plans and mission statements.
Let's work together to tell your story and propel you and your business forward. Put my skills and experience to work for you with:
* Writing projects such as newsletters, annual reports, website content and blogging. I can help you tailor your story for your intended audience, find the most interesting stories you have to tell, and write a story that grabs the attention of your audience.
* Editing projects such as copy editing and content editing. My experience as a newspaper editor means that I can tighten your prose, check spelling and grammar and help you convey your message clearly.
* Media relations, encompassing coaching, training and story pitching. I have successfully increased media placements quarter over quarter and year over year for two nationally affiliated nonprofits.
