I'm a highly efficient Seattle-based writer and editor with a masters degree in journalism from Boston University.
I graduated from Bucknell University with my BA in Psychology in 2012. Then I started my journalism career writing about health for Boston magazine. I got my MS in Journalism from Boston University a bit later, in December 2013, where I focused on science writing and narrative non-fiction. While at BU, I also managed the university's weekend-long, award-winning narrative journalism conference and assisted with edits on several book projects. Following my graduate program, I ghostwrote a book about using emotional agility to effectively manage teams and I worked as the Managing Editor of MedTech Boston, a medical innovation website and start-up.
In 2015, I took an executive assistant job at Upworthy, where I helped the editorial director manage restructuring, hiring and logistics. I eventually switched to an editing role at Upworthy; in that job, I learned how to make content go viral, launched our freelance program and managed a team of staff writers. Last year I was hired at the New York Times' product review website, Wirecutter, to project manage, write and edit long form reviews of health, fitness, travel and outdoor gear. Now I'm a freelance writer and editor. I work with companies like the Seattle Times, Solutions Journalism Network, athenahealth, Northrop Grumman, the New England Journal of Medicine, 538 and others to create and polish quality content.
Why should you hire me? I'm hyper-organized and efficient, no matter what project I'm working on. I have deep experience with both long and short form editing, and I'm an organizational wiz. I love to teach writers and editors alike how to create content that will reach the most people possible. I'm a radically candid manager. I understand how to use data to make smart content decisions. Perhaps most importantly, I grew up in the digital age; I live and breathe online media.
When I'm not living on the Internet, I'm a yoga teacher. I also run my own food blog.
