Introduction
I honed my “old school” reporting skills while earning my Master of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communications from New York University. From there, I went on to become a print magazine editor, juggling heds and decks, pull quotes and sidebars. Along the way, I added social media savvy, SEO expertise, and blogging know-how to the mix.

In short, I create all kinds of content with publishing credits including Family Circle, Parents, WomansDay.com, CreditCards.com, BankRate.com, Amex OPENForum, NewsCred, University Business, and many more. I also ghostwrite for a number of corporate clients and brands.

Other to-knows? I'm:

  • a staunch supporter of the Oxford comma
  • a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA)
  • and a happily married mom of two boys
Bragging rights
Some people read the stuff that I write; my boys are awesome; I like to punch and kick things (mostly for fitness reasons)
