I am a professional writer with experience across a wide range of platforms. After spending a significant portion of my professional career in journalism I have had the pleasure of widening the scope of my writing skills with more focus on online audience engagement, blogging, social media, monitoring user behavior, and writing in an analytical style. I am a strategic thinker, with the ability to work with others to put together robust, detailed plans and I am passionate and enthusiastic about the written word, with the ability to speak and present articulately and convincingly.

-Proven professional writing, public presentation, and group communication/facilitation skills.
-Fluency in emerging digital editorial practices and tools.
