I've been writing professionally for more than 15 years wearing various hats: copywriter, journalist, public relations writer for special events, social media manager and blogger.
My writing style lends itself to myriad applications: ad copy, news and feature stories, public relations and web content.
I have a B.A. in English/Communications from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. Completed additional coursework: advanced copywriting via Bookshop at Ogilvy & Mather, Los Angeles; advanced copywriting, social media marketing and online marketing strategies at University of California-San Diego; feature writing at Palomar College. Event planning certificate: Cal State-San Marcos, 2012.
I began my writing career as a reporter for The North Adams Transcript, a 10,000-circulation daily in North Adams, MA.
From there, I worked as a copywriter and proofreader for an ad agency in Boston before moving to California.
In San Diego, I wrote for an ad agency as well as in corporate marketing/communications settings. I have also written features for the North County Times, Escondido, CA, a 74,000-circulation daily and the Valley Roadrunner, a 9,500-circulation weekly. Most recently, I have been writing features for two quarterly magazines: Escondido Magazine and Vista Magazine, as well as providing public relations for events.
