Professional Experience

I am passionate about everything involving the written word from scribbled notes on napkins to novels. I edit and write non-fiction books for American Girl, as well as run my own editorial website, ecoedits.com, for businesses and academia. I have extensive editing and writing experience in both fiction and non-fiction children and adult books, websites/blogs, magazines, screenplays, and catalog copy. I edited Hallmark's award-winning line of Interactive Story Buddies. I have movie and TV experience. I worked on the award-winning Jingle and Bell Christmas movies. I also edited and helped shoot the multi-nominated short film, Full Time. I'm a strategic, innovative thinker who works well with or without deadlines. I am also a motivated self-starter, organized and structured. I have knowledge of MLA, APA, and CMS. I love and welcome a creative challenge of any kind.
