Fifteen years ago, I was data-entering human resources information at the dizzying rate of 75-words-per-minute at my job when a friend called and asked if I wanted to help start a local music magazine called "Innerloop." I jumped at the chance and soon found my passion for wordsmithing and the communications profession.
After receiving my master's degree in print journalism from Columbia University in 2004, I worked across the country and in my patria of Italy as a journalist, editor and Web editor. I have published hundreds of articles with such reputable news sources as the Fast Company, Northern Virginia Magazine, Associated Press, Houston Chronicle, Chicago Tribune, Boston Phoenix, Red Herring, Patch and many more.
In addition to reporting and editing, I have also spoken at Columbia University about "New Media" (not so new anymore) topics, managed teams of freelancers and in-house employees, conceived and produced content marketing and marketing strategies—including social media, and managed social media accounts to help build a community of readers and brand awareness.
If you are looking to hire a freelance content or communications professional who will not over-bill you, but has experience, common sense, and a dedication to deadlines, you should email me.
In her spare time, she's found swimming, dancing in her kitchen with her three children, or trying out every Italian restaurant in the tri-state area with her Air Force hubby.
