Experience

Summary

With a background in marketing and publicity, I’m passionate about creating content that’s valuable to a brand’s current audience and able to attract new readership. I’m fluent in SEO, content writing, copywriting, editing, and social media marketing.

Work history

Content Specialist
I first started writing for BTL as an intern in 2016. Now, I regularly contribute articles covering travel trends, wellness tips, destination guides, and other travel-related content. Additionally, I’ve completed SEO training courses via Findability.
Guide Writer
Currently, I write travel guides for Go Overseas on topics including studying or interning abroad, volunteering in another country, and international tours.
Copywriter
Working remotely for this marketing agency, I created SEO proposals, wrote landing page copy, and served as a ghostwriter on a series of marketing automation blog posts.
Publicist
On a team of publicists promoting the company’s represented photographers, I wrote for the blog, edited contributed content for consistency in style and formatting, and developed content partnerships with industry blogs and publications.
Content Marketing Manager
Initially starting as an intern, I was ultimately hired full-time to manage the blog, compose copy for landing pages and other marketing materials, and oversee social media.
Volunteer Grant Writer
While participating in New Zealand’s Working Holiday Visa program, I volunteered at this indigenous plant and animal sanctuary. I composed grant applications seeking funding for an organic, non-toxic herbicide and assisted with social media.
