I started my career as a writer and editor for lifestyles and women’s magazines 15 years ago and now combine that same sophisticated editorial judgment with facility across cutting-edge digital content and communications platforms.
Though I remain nostalgic about the permanence of the printed word, I’m far more enthused by the opportunities for storytelling (and marketing) that have been made possible by the Web.
A master’s program in digital media entrepreneurship at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication converted me to a forward-thinking futurist with hands-on multimedia skills. Later, coordinating an entrepreneurship institute for journalism educators enhanced my understanding of how to create, maintain, market and monetize digital platforms. And my full-time job exposed me to sales, digital marketing and intrapreneurship.
Today I blend these skills to curate niche publications do content marketing across blog, social and Web platforms. I manage Web projects and am strong in website maintenance for WordPress, Drupal and other platforms (such as Django databases that power apps). I can also design and automate mobile-friendly e-newsletters in mailchimp, place search and social advertising, and make sure that the content I develop is discovered by its intended audience.
