Career-wise, the path to where I am today begins with my early training as a journalist — research, interviewing, organizing my thoughts, writing under deadline, and being rigorously edited by others.
I started out writing for weekly newspapers, but then took a different path. First I was at a national nonprofit, where I helped grow a legacy brand by writing to support advocacy, fundraising, and corporate communications. Later I led marketing communications at a start-up trade media company.
However, in time, I was writing less. I was outsourcing to freelancers ... and finding I envied them. In 2000, I became a freelance writer myself, and I've been at it ever since.
Today, with the emergence of content marketing, the skills I've honed for decades are in great demand. I'm so happy to help my clients fill a critical need for talent and expertise as they look to engage, connect and influence their target audiences.
