Professional Experience

A bit about me... Having worked on staff at national magazines such as Family Circle and Body Mind Spirit, I have a good idea of what editors are looking for. My number one job as a freelancer is to make your life easier. Because let\'s face it, you\'re very, very busy. Throughout the years I’ve done every aspect of editorial work. I\'ve written for consumer publications and for corporate clients. I\'ve verified facts in consumer magazines, books and newsletters. I\'ve copyedited education books, business books as well as corporate marketing materials for a number of freelance clients. This combination of skills adds value. For example, when you hire me as your writer, you also get a fact-checker/researcher and copyeditor to boot. I have also dipped my toes in the Fortune 500 pool, working with marketing/communications departments. So whether it\'s corporate or consumer -- I\'ve got your back if you\'re my client.
