    LET'S GET ACQUAINTED

    I'm a natural communicator with a knack for connecting with audiences and identifying a reader’s drives. I have robust experience creating documents and content for a diverse range of mediums—print and digital magazines, e-commerce sites, physical books, paid and owned marketing media. Not just a storyteller, I have publishing know-how when it comes to print and digital books that spans from the ISBN procurement and page layout to nitty-gritty substantive edits and final-pass proofreads. I'm a passionate developmental editor, a versatile writer, and a personality powerhouse that makes a dynamic addition to any team.
