COLLABORATIVE. RELIABLE. CREATIVE.
At twelve years old, I picked up a red pen and sat down with my local newspaper. I've never looked back...
I believe in the power of storytelling as the most effective way to communicate a message. Successful storytelling is how people come to understand and connect with a person, product or service. Every day, stories are told in newspapers and magazines, essays and books, speeches and presentations, and on websites and social media. These are the mediums in which I help people tell their stories. I love what I do.
As a journalist, my work has been featured in The Washington Post, Healthline, Tonic, Paste, Headspace and more. I cover a variety of categories, including health & wellness, parenting, divorce, medical news, home and general lifestyle.
I also work as a content writer and am skilled at transforming complicated information (data, statistics, research, reports, etc.) into easy-to-understand language. In this role, I’ve revised websites, regularly composed on-line content, ghost-written blogs and generated story ideas. In addition, I have composed internal/external communications, created executive biographies, developed speeches and even produced newsletters and annual reports.
When it comes to writing and creating, I’m a bit of a geek. I always a enjoy a good brainstorm, can write for SEO and take pride in beating deadlines. My work is well-researched and delivered clean.
On a personal note, I am a New Orleans native and firmly believe that purple, green and gold look great together. I love magnolias – the trees and flowers. After graduating from The University of Georgia with a journalism degree, I spent a summer living in Paris working for an English-speaking bike tour company. I can spot an American tourist a mile away. I moved to Manhattan one month before 9/11 and stayed. It was my home for seven years, and I loved every minute of it. I now live in the small town of Katonah, NY; it's peaceful, friendly and beautiful.
But most importantly, I am a single mother to two young children, a 9-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy, who keep me on my toes. They are smart, funny, curious and not always perfect angels. We love music, dancing in the kitchen, reading science fiction and laughing at our crazy dog Scout.
I'm glad you're here, and I look forward to connecting with you.
