Professional Experience

My background as a reporter, editor and copy editor equips me to produce clean, accurate, well-researched and well-written copy on any subject, and I'll meet your deadline. I'm a versatile career journalist with 27 years of experience at daily and weekly newspapers, monthly magazines and newsletters. I have written news and features for magazines, newspapers and newsletters. As a staff editor, I have assigned and edited staff and freelance articles. I have covered information technology; the pharmaceutical industry; human resources; business; management; education; healthcare; local, state and federal government; Capitol Hill; religion; and equestrian sports. I have a journalism degree and a master of fine arts in creative writing. I have published three short stories.
