I’m in love with writing and language. Our life-long love affair began in Pennsylvania when I insisted that my parents teach me to read. That was the beginning of a beautiful friendship with words. I’ve been working as a freelance writer since 2006 when my local editor gave me a chance to write a small article. Little did she know that it was the beginning of a 13 year and counting career. I’ve written articles for regional to national publications, managed social media campaigns and written copy for small businesses and non-profits, and have branched out into editing and Chicago Manual Style formatting for academics.
My specialty is creating powerful, impactful copy, and turning existing work into a work of art. My interests, however, extend beyond copy writing and editing. I’ve designed the graphics for multiple social media campaigns according to brand guidelines and have developed a passion for visual and graphic design. Technology has always been a fascination of mine, and I love helping people by combining data analytics and content strategy to track campaign goals and progress.
When I’m not writing or editing copy, you can find me writing fiction. Yes, I really am always writing something! I relish being in nature, and will find excuses to abscond to the beach or the desert at a moment’s notice. I also play the cello, volunteer with the Library of Congress’s program transcribing historical documents, watch hockey (Let’s Go Pens!), and exploring the many hidden gems San Diego has to offer, including my favorite bookshop – Mysterious Galaxy.
