Professional/Personal Overview
  Versatile, seasoned, creative, and über clever: You have my word on it.

Copywriting (web/print), for e-commerce and other promotional writing (media kits, press releases, etc.). Clients include One Kings Lane, FAO Schwarz, Intermix, Babies "R" Us, Beauty Bar (beautybar.com).

12+ years editorial experience: fashion, beauty, home decor/craft/DIY, fashion, wedding/bridal, spa/wellness, lifestyle. Clips include Marie Claire, HGTV.com, Modern Bride, Women's Health and Fitness, iVillage, myLifetime.com, and New Jersey Monthly, as well as a celeb-style blog for Life & Style/Bauer Publishing.

An editorial and copywriting whiz, I don't need hand-holding; I get the info I need and get it right. On time, on budget.

I have a flair for creating an accessible, consistent brand voice to best reach the target demographic, ages eight to 88. From savvy friend to straight-shooting expert, I engage the reader. I brainstorm, tweak, and rework to always hit the mark.
