I am a lifelong lover of words … also, used bookstores, yoga, bull terriers, beach barbecues, college basketball, Scrabble, party dresses and burritos.
I was born into advertising and PR — my father owns an agency — and I learned from an early age how to shape tastes and opinions by using my love of language. My very first jobs were writing and editing for lifestyle magazines, making 10 cents a word or being “paid” out of the product closet. But I loved it.
In 2002, I graduated magna cum laude from Vanderbilt University, and since, my writing has taken me on a wonderful journey from magazine editorial to PR and advertising to book publishing to online media and community building to corporate communications.
I specialize in copywriting, ghostwriting, blogging, speechwriting, feature writing and copyediting, with expertise in public relations and social media and a passion for fashion, health and fitness, yoga, and travel. I’m an AP Style nerd. I probably overuse the ellipses. My favorite word is “nonplussed.” Welcome to this online collection of my work.
I recently relocated from Los Angeles to Nashville, where I am the Social Media & Marketing Strategist for Tractor Supply Co. and a writer for Women’s Health magazine. To discuss opportunities — freelance or full-time — or to see my full professional resume, please find me on LinkedIn or email me.
