What I read

The number one book in my life is the AP Style guidebook. Twitter and news apps are a guilty pleasure. I love romance or any celebrity-written publication.

Side projects

In the past, I assisted a communications firm with social media, media pitches and events and proofread for Northwestern University. I also freelanced for a local newspaper and blogged for fun in my spare time.

Ideal team

I am open to working with any type of business so long as there is always communication and everyone is on the same page with how projects are being performed.
