I'm a fearless, seasoned general-assignment freelancer with a proven track record and versatile palette. I can tackle subjects with sensitivity, such as raising an emotionally healthy adopted child, or immerse myself in specialized fields, such as Web analytics. My background is in the home, on which I write regularly for publications such as Newsday, and I am the executive editor of two military consumer magazines, so I know the importance of deadlines and details, and I hang around for revisions or fact-checks long after an article is completed. I also can handle a fast pace of multiple projects simultaneously. In addition to the home, specialties include lifestyle and women's issues, CRM and general business, pregnancy and parenting, and nutrition and fitness. Visit www.dinasantorelli.com for more.
