I’ve always loved to read—fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, you name it—so I feel fortunate that I’ve been able to enjoy a career working with the written word.
I took my first journalism class as a Communications major at Fairfield University. My professor, who was the advisor to the student newspaper, encouraged me to write for the paper and I found that I loved contributing features on campus events and profiles of people in the community. Additionally, I minored in Spanish and spent a semester at the Spanish-American Institute of International Education in Seville, Spain where I was immersed in Spanish language and culture and travelled around Spain and to other countries.
After graduation, I took a job as an editorial assistant at Family Circle where I had the opportunity to learn from some of the most accomplished editors in the magazine industry. I later moved on to an associate editor position at Child before becoming a senior editor at LHJ.com.
After nearly a decade as an editor on staff, I made the leap to freelance writing and editing. Since then, I’ve contributed to more than 40 print and digital publications including Real Simple, Better Homes and Gardens, Bridal Guide, Scholastic, Parents and Woman’s Day. I coauthored the book “New Etiquette for Today’s Bride,” and I’ve created content for a roster of corporate clients from national retailers to healthcare companies. Most recently, I have been editing nonfiction books, helping experts in various disciplines share their expertise with readers in a compelling way.
Throughout my career, the common thread has been my love of the written word and of telling stories in an engaging way. A writer myself, I understand how daunting a blank page can be. As an editor, I love guiding writers to their best work and helping them showcase their unique perspective and voice. We all have a story to tell. I can’t wait to help you tell yours.
