Hello, and thank you for taking the time to visit my online writing portfolio.
My career has predominantly occurred within marketing agency environments. Over my professional life I have served both B2B and B2C companies and am acutely familiar with how the sales cycles and therefore marketing needs for both segments differ.
I also spent time as the client when I was the marketing and communications specialist at Southeastern Ohio Regional Medical Center in Cambridge, Ohio. My time during that first year of the pandemic was epitomized by creating and recreating the wheel, because everyone was in uncharted territory. From sending internal memos to inform staff and department leaders of new rules and regulations to using social media to keep our community as informed as possible, this was a challenging but rewarding time, and I would not wish any of it away.
Types of Content
You will see a variety of writing genres as you scan this website. I have created everything from marketing proposals and e-blasts to social media editorial calendars and sell sheets. My writing style can be customized based on the need.
For long-form writing I utilize the skills I gathered as a national ranking domestic extemporaneous speaker in high school (National Forensic League). I am able to formulate ideas and research in parallel, which expedites my process.
The following are some accomplishments I’m particularly proud of.
Fourth in State of Ohio, Domestic Extemporaneous Speaking, 1994 and 1995
National Qualifier, Domestic Extemporaneous Speaking, 1995
Girl Scout Gold Award Recipient, 1996
Phi Beta Kappa Junior Admission, 1999
Masters In Library And Information Science (Kent State University), 2000
Masters in History (Kent State University), 2003
