I earned my MA in English and Professional Writing at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. My experience in publishing, content editing, and social media promotional strategies developed through my work with Focus on the Coast, a local lifestyle magazine published in Wilmington, NC. I worked with them for over a year as a freelance writer and advertising sales associate, writing advertising editorials for print and movie reviews for our e-newsletter. I was also a part of a team that developed the magazine's Facebook ad Instagram to promote our magazine's articles and our advertisers' events via social media.
As Program Secretary with St. Andrews Covenant Presbyterian Church, my skills extend to writing and layout design of newsletters and bulletins as well as event planning for ages Pre-K through college. I am adept at data entry and organizing the various youth groups and committees which participate in the church community.
I presently work and write as a content creator and social media strategist for various clients, where I am responsible for generating content for blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and others. I am looking to expand my writing skills further into the world of social media.
