A bit about me...
I got my start in journalism in middle school, when I wrote, printed, and mailed family newsletters. My relatives were kind enough to not ask to be taken off the circulation list.
Editing my high school newspaper and working on the newspaper at Washington University in St. Louis helped me hone my skills, and so did internships during college. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in political science, I earned my master’s degree in journalism from Medill in 1997.
I've had great staff jobs, like those I held at U.S. News & World Report and at Adweek, but freelancing fits me best.
Since going solo in 2004, I’ve written for a number of consumer, trade, and association publications. They include AARP The Magazine, Bankrate.com, Data Informed, Diversity Woman, EContent, Entrepreneur, Money.com, Photo District News, Popular Photography, Self-Employed, Stacker, The Rotarian, and USNews.com.
I’ve also gained extensive experience writing content marketing pieces for national brands like Costco, First Citizens Bank, KeyBank, Nikon, RE/MAX, Waze, LiveIntent, and the U.S. Postal Service. I have ghostwritten thought leadership articles for prominent technology companies as well.
I’m a strong writer, interviewer, researcher, and finder of great sources. My brand promise is to deliver clean copy on time.
I live in Dallas with my husband, a son who is growing up too fast, and a feisty little canine.
