I'm a former award-winning news reporter-turned organizational communications professional/content specialist. I specialize in planning and producing digital, social and print content – including marketing collateral, contributed articles/earned media, case studies, ad and website copy, blogs and social media content, RFP responses, presentations, and reports – that supports and enhances organizations’ reputation and standing among targeted audiences. I create, evaluate, improve and expand the appeal, effectiveness, clarity and presentation of content. I'm particularly adept at synthesizing complicated information into easier-to-understand messages. I'm also proficient updating distribution channels and social media sites/feeds with original, repurposed and curated content that interest and engage targeted audiences.
My book, Hell AND High Water:The Battle to Save the New Orleans Times-Picayune, was published in late 2013, and is the recipient of three national awards to-date. It showcases my ability to tell individuals' compelling stories to illustrate and humanize a company's and industry's struggles in the face of unprecedented technological and social changes.
