I am a social media marketing professional with ten years of blogging, editing, and writing experience. I’ve been working with WordPress both freelance and professionally for more than five years. Writing and editing are my strengths, as well as marketing strategy and communication. I have extensive experience disseminating information from multiple brands to target audiences across a multitude of platforms. I enjoy communicating an appealing story in a concise format.
Prior to my graduation from Northern Illinois University in 2012, I was a college newspaper reporter and wrote freelance articles in my spare time. My academic focus was print Journalism, but I also studied integrated marketing communications, international media, and public relations. I was a member of the Public Relations Student Society of America, and I have written press releases and managed events as well.
