Professional Experience

I have a unique communications body of work based on the sum of my many experiences and skills, with a strong foundation in the Fortune 50 corporate world. I am from the New York metro area, currently live in north Florida, and have just completed the copy editing certification program with MediaBistro. I had a long career with IBM in Manhattan and Westchester County in NY in corporate marketing communications, events production, management, and internal communications, followed by several years of freelance writing, editing and operations management in a variety of business models. I welcome freelance writing and editing assignments for print and web, specializing in technical and business content. I also have a passion for and expertise in events production and love to work in that arena as well. I am willing and able to travel anywhere. I love animals (dogs, especially), travel and entertainment, and have enjoyed dabbling in acting/performing all my life.
