Storytelling for businesses and creatives.
I have multiple years experience in freelance writing, publishing, online marketing, photography, and design. I graduated college with a communications degree. For three years, I worked at Penguin Random House as an online marketer and content creator on blogging platforms, websites, and other social media outlets. I also have done freelance writing and editing for various nonprofits and businesses. I’ve learned how to tell good stories via social media and how to authentically connect with consumers on a personal level.
At heart, I'm a true Storyteller. I'm a creative thinker with a knack for storytelling and communication in an effective way. I can appeal to an audience through my writing, editing, and storytelling abilities.
Here are some past achievements:
While in publishing, I helped launch a new imprint. For this imprint, I helped launch a blog, curated and edited content, helped find bloggers for the site, wrote for the site, brainstormed and implemented online web seminars/events for the site, and helped communicate online to our audience through our social media outlets. I was crucial for the success of the blog, for networking to find writers and content for the blog, and finding an online audience for the site.
Right now, I'm working at a local magazine to write articles and edit all articles for their upcoming 112 page print edition. My eyes will be the last to see all articles before they are printed. I will be editing and proofreading for style, grammar, and fact-checking.
I was hired to help a social enterprise startup with the writing for their new website. I took a lot of notes, thoughts, and unorganized content, and I helped organize the content and communicate effectively for their new online presence.
Mentoring writers is a passion of mine, since I've been in the publishing business and know what it takes to succeed--whether it's traditionally or self-published. I've helped edit and shape several books. I've also coached and mentored authors on their way to success in branding, writing, and social media presences.
