Professional/Personal Overview
  I'm a highly skilled, versatile, and reliable writing professional with more than 15 years in the publishing industry. I've written for The New York Times, Yankee, Ladies' Home Journal, Babble.com, AOL Food, and many others. I've also written for a variety of academic and custom publications, focusing on financial, insurance, and automotive subjects. I'm comfortable writing about almost anything, but I'm especially at home with parenting, lifestyle, shelter, food, and health.
