All About Me

Here’s the scoop on what I’ve done and what I’m doing:

After years spent doing administrative work and field spares analysis (whatever that is), I found my true calling one day after accepting an internship at Texas Monthly magazine. I was officially hired on soon after and remained on staff for nearly a decade, working my way up from editorial assistant to assistant editor.

From there I moved to American Way, the inflight magazine of American Airlines, where as a senior-level editor I assigned, edited, and wrote all variety of stories, including the travel features and celebrity cover profile. I was with American Way for nine years, and while the work was great, one of my favorite parts of the job was the free flight benefits!

Other staff positions include a two-year stint as the editor of a bimonthly travel magazine called Group Travel Planet (which garnered me a most improved magazine award), and, most recently, a two-and-a-half-year term as the editor-in-chief of Simply Buckhead magazine, a luxury lifestyle print publication distributed throughout the Atlanta area.

Today, I am back freelancing full-time, servicing a stable of clients big and small with all of their publishing needs, from writing and editing to copyediting and proofreading.

My work has appeared in dozens of print and online publications, including the websites for CNN, Good Housekeeping, HGTV, and Woman’s Day; the inflight magazines for American, Delta, and Southwest airlines; and the in-room magazines for Omni, Hilton, and Loews hotels. Other clients include custom publishers, Fortune 500 companies, top-ranked universities, and national PR firms. And while I write about everything under the sun, lifestyle and travel topics are my specialty

I am also a sought-after editor, proofreader, and copyeditor, contracted for work by everyone from individual authors to major corporations.
