Angela Gartner
 
Professional/Personal Overview
  I am a freelance journalist who has written feature articles, profiles, and business reviews for magazines, national websites and newspapers. I am currently a staff reporter at The News-Herald, a daily newspaper near Cleveland, OH

A generalist by nature, I am comfortable with any assignment topic. My editors often comment on my ability to find timely and interesting stories for their readers. My philosophy on working with editors is to always give updates on story progress and never be late for a deadline.

I also have eight years experience in working with external/internal clients to design, edit and write ad copy for print and online advertising. Additionally, I have created marketing materials for events, and general promotion.
