About Me

200pxI 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 sites like VICE, Mom.me, and GOOD, and my stories often focus on either pets and animals or parenting and family topics (especially working moms). I also regularly take on marketing/PR and editorial projects for clients.

I have spent much of my career at nonprofit organizations (in communications) 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, really) 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!)
