Human Interest Stories
I have 13 years of experience as a writer specializing in higher education and human interest stories. Through my work, I strive to accurately represent individuals and their contributions through authentic storytelling.
With a Master of Fine Arts in graphic design, I often conceptualize my writing together with visual form. Some of the work included in this portfolio also features my design, photography, or concepting.
As a marketing professional, I have been awarded at the regional and national levels by the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations.
