Service Description

I am a longtime professional writer. After graduating one of the most competitive colleges in the USA, I was a sportswriter for USA Today for three years. Then, I was the managing editor of a statewide religious newspaper.

I became a free-lance writer 20 years ago. For several years, The Chicago Tribune was my primary client as I covered several communities and school districts and also wrote features and news stories for the newspaper's Business, Tempo, Friday Magazine, and other sections.

I also regularly wrote articles for Crain's Chicago Business and wrote numerous articles for Fortune 500 corporations. In my spare time, I also taught writing classes at community colleges and was the director of community writing groups.

In recent years, I covered News, Business, Sports and Features for several other Chicago-area newspapers and recently began writing Business and Health articles for a national online operation.
