Worked with



Social Media Copywriting Content Email Public Relations



I've worked as a Content Marketing Specialist for an Inc. 5000 company, as well as the Chief Copy Editor for a startup magazine. A good story will make people move long before a product description, so I'm always on the hunt: what story is next?

Work history

Content Marketing Specialist
Frontline was just named one of Inc. 5000’s fastest growing companies. As a Content Marketing Specialist, my primary role was to research and craft useful content—blog posts, white papers, emails, and copy—to generate leads and thought leadership.
Chief Copy Editor
My main responsibility at DRM is to oversee the entire editing process and to perform final edits for blog posts and print issues. I manage a team of seven copy editors, write copy for the website, and contribute my own original content as well.
