I live in the New York City metropolitan area (Brooklyn, to be exact). My current work in communications–writing website copy, social media posts; fundraising appeal letters and donor correspondence–taps into my backgrounds in writing, technology and project management.

Your content delivery will be well-structured and copyedited, as I’ve worked as a copy editor and proofreader for print publications.

Past projects include e-newsletters, e-learning course materials, and book reviews. I’ve worked as a writer and editor for education, technology and fashion companies and many nonprofits. Previous education clients include New York University’s Virtual College, Amplify, Inc., and other organizations specializing in educational content; and for Muze, Inc., an online data provider.

As the Head of Site Development for an interactive agency, I developed and ran workshops on technical topics like JavaScript and CSS (this was really fun!). I also wrote departmental procedure handbooks and style guides for client sites.

Fundraising work I’ve done: researching and writing grant proposals, letters of interest, appeal letters, and funding collateral (brochures and flyers). Schools and other organizations have won grants for gardening, environmental and dance programs based on the strength of my proposals and letters.
