WHO AM I?
I am a meticulous editor, passionate writer and devoted advocate for nonprofit communications and marketing. My background in progressive journalism and self-proclaimed feminism defines who I am as a writer and that translates straight to the page. I believe that a writer cannot be good without having the skills to be an editor and I am dedicated to ensuring that my editing only improves my own writing and the pieces that I am working on. With all of that being said, I am the megaphone in a sea of writers behind their computer screens and I hope to find a career that allows me to voice my opinions and collaborate with others in order to create change within the world around us.
After having experiences working for In These Times magazine and The Art of Infertility, my writing has been shaped to share the stories of those who do not have a voice. I love working with advocates within the progressive media sector in order to elevate the opinions of those who are not normally heard. From interviewing residents of the Detroit Water Crisis to creating blog posts about LGBTQ couples who suffer from invisibility within the medical infertility world my writing is versatile and purposeful.
From editing manuscripts to proofing articles for magazines, my experience has seen a wide span of editing styles, purposes and voices. My knowledge of the Chicago Manual of Style, AP Style and MLA Formatting have all enabled me to market myself as a detail-oriented and thoughtful editor. I take on anything from 300 page essays to time-sensitive online articles and I will perform with purpose and precision.
My knowledge of content strategy spans from a deep understanding of content management systems, SEO and social media platforms. I understand how generations interact across social media, news outlets and even print media. I feel that as a nonprofit communicator, one must ensure that they understand their audience. Through my experience creating a content strategy for a technical nonprofit and grant writing, my writing and editing can be geared toward any communications a nonprofit might need.
