Professional Experience

I am an intelligent, accomplished writer and meticulous editor with the proven ability to create engaging, informative, and entertaining content across a variety of subject areas. While earning my Bachelor’s in Marketing at the College of William & Mary, I honed my skills in crafting clear, impactful written content. Since graduation, I have utilized these skills to sharpen copy focused on early childhood education, mental healthcare, youth development, art exhibitions, art conservation, labor and employment law, and more. I am a motivated, resourceful worker, able to complete tasks on deadline while working independently. I also have significant training and experience in humor writing, from full-length scripted comedy shows to how-to blog posts to topical tweets. In my spare time, I write short fiction, narrative non-fiction, and screenplays.
