I have spent the past 20 years putting my journalism degree to work at exciting startups and top magazine brands. Writing, editing, content strategy, partnerships, SEO, social media, video, and more: it's all part of my world. Ghostwriting is a new addition and I'm thrilled for the publication of the soon-to-be published book Your Turn about career + motherhood.
Recent highlights are below—see full resume here.
