Laura Parise

Writer and Editor

Location icon United States of America

Having studied abroad in Australia and lived in many different cities, I've come to realize the beauty in stories; the ability to paint a picture with words when a camera won't suffice. I've always loved poetry and writing, but as I became a professional, I realized the beauty in relationships and the reward of helping others find their own story.

I am actively seeking roles in writing and editorial. Having the skills necessary to critically edit and proofread multiple genres, implement publishing processes, and facilitate meetings, I would be an asset to both digital and paper-based publishing interfaces. With a variety of professional backgrounds in meeting planning, marketing, tutoring, and administration, my experiences provide me with proficiencies in communication, organization, grammar, sentence structure, multimedia utilization, and research development that will carry me successfully through any writing or editorial role.

Natural Sexual Health | Whole Foods Magazine

Confidence and health are vital for men and women inside and outside of the bedroom. When sexual desire, performance and health decline over time, we blame age as hormone levels and functionality change. However, the way you feel about yourself doesn't have to change, too.
