About Me

DSC_0109dI provide writing, editing, copy editing/proofreading, and copywriting services for clients across the country from my home base of Rochester, New York. (Yes, I voluntarily live in a city that gets an average of 100 inches of snow each year.) I started focusing exclusively on freelance work in 2014.

I’ve written for VICE, Mom.me, GOOD, Columbia College Today (Columbia Univ.), and many other online and print publications. My stories often focus on pets/animals or parenting/family topics (especially working moms), but I’ve covered a wide variety of subjects, from fashion to personal finance to food. I also regularly take on marketing/PR and editorial projects for clients.

I have spent much of my career at nonprofit organizations, and I worked in the animal welfare field for a total of nine years. For more details, see my LinkedIn profile.

I’m a professional member of the Cat Writers’ Association (yes, that’s a thing) and have won three writing awards in its annual communications contest. I am also a professional member of the Society of Professional Journalists and a member of Mediabistro’s AvantGuild professional network.

I have a B.A. in English and creative writing from Bryn Mawr College and an M.A. in journalism from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University.

(But wait, there’s more!)
