Service Description

Articles and Content: I can write short service articles or more lengthy feature articles or content on a variety of topics for either print or online publications. I am experienced working with educational and non-profit organizations to communicate their goals and vision. I worked for two years at the Brainerd Dispatch, a daily newspaper in central Minnesota, as a newspapers in education coordinator.

Press Releases: I write and edit short pyramid-style news releases to announce products, events or business changes for distribution to media outlets. I also can write feature-length profiles of your business or individuals.

Personal bios and profiles: I can write or edit your bio or profile for your website or for networking websites like Linked-In. I specialize in interviewing and writing stories of any length about people, their lives and accomplishments.

Experience: I have worked for more than two and a half years as a director of public affairs for the LDS Church in central Minnesota, regularly writing and submitting news releases. I worked as a blogger for two years, writing and editing my own content on a daily basis on topics like books, parenting, relationships, food, organization and religion. I've written a women's fiction novel and am currently working on a non-fiction inspirational manuscript about faith and the economy.
