Currently, I am writing website and Social Media content for a technology client that offers design, marketing, and IT services to a variety of businesses. My background includes several years of corporate communications and marketing experience for two international firms, where I oversaw and directed website redesign, Social Media strategy, marketing collateral creation, brand compliance, public relations and marketing. Before becoming a successful public relations and marketing professional, I honed my writing skills as a magazine editor and newspaper journalist covering topics including international finance, national real estate investment and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center.
