The Here and Now

No matter the industry or topic, from profile pieces to white papers and beyond, I produce informative, engaging and refreshing content.

As a freelance writer I’ve been published in multiple industries including credit and accounts receivable, finance, fundraising, non profit and the arts.

How did I get here? I took advantage of a unique opportunity to produce freelance writing projects  around my marketing role in the financial services industry.  And then within the marketing role, I created and edited compelling content for the web, newsletters, RFP’s (request for proposal)- and sales scripts (designed to bring in new business and build trust with clients and prospects).

The Proving Ground

Temple University, Klein College of Communications (ranked in the top 5) provided me the training and foundation with which to develop and flourish as a writer.

At Temple, I became deeply immersed in the launch and success of “Philadelphia People”, a  profile magazine distributed throughout the Philadelphia area.

As a student on the magazine staff, I performed copywriting and photography- assisted in planning sessions and spearheaded fundraising programs.

This ground-up publishing experience at Temple was a stellar proving ground for me to learn the many aspects of the publishing industry. It was also the impetus for my deep appreciation and understanding of successful businesses operated ethically and with integrity.

So—What Else?
