I am a creative, thorough, and passionate writer, and a meticulously detail-oriented editor. I write 5-10 posts per week for Mediabistro's PRNewser blog, and I have done everything from editing, fact-checking, researching, and adding original content to the second edition Walking Boston (published September 2013), to editing alumni magazines for independent schools. I've also created and edited web content for non-profit organizations, and have had short fiction and poetry published in two small literary magazines.

Other Work History
As a student at Roger Williams University (graduated with a BA in Communications and Minor in Creative Writing in 2008), I served as co-creator, board member, promoter, and editor of the student literary magazine. Also during college, I served as Intern to the Director of Communications at Wilbraham & Monson Academy, writing press releases, writing and editing web content, and creating event programs.
Since graduating and before freelancing, I held a few different full-time positions at different organizations, the most relevant being my position as Program Planner at PRIM&R, where I was the contact person for volunteer members of three planning committees, managed the "Basecamp" website, edited multiple documents and materials from several departments, and helped plan a conference for 3000 people.
Aside from my freelance career, I also teach highs school level Writing Workshop classes at Wilbraham & Monson Academy.
