If you like what you see, let’s work together!

Feature Writing:

There’s nothing better than sharing a good story. I love talking to people, asking the right questions and pulling out the best bits of their insights for an insightful and interesting feature story. Luckily, I’ve had the opportunity to do just that in my work for Cancer Treatment Centers of America’s “Cancer Fighters Thrive Magazine” and Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry’s alumni magazine, “The Diamond.”

Content Management and Writing for Muck Rack:

As the features editor for Muck Rack’s popular PR/journalism blog, I am responsible for recruiting guest writers, evaluating pitches, editing posts, managing a robust editorial calendar and publishing and promoting all feature content on the site. I also write for Muck Rack from time to time and compile their monthly top picks link roundup.

As the content strategist for Jetpack, I am responsible for writing one post a week, developing landing pages, crafting content for social media and overall content strategy and direction for Jetpack’s blog.
