They've kind of always been my thing.
I'm a writer, editor and content marketer with 8+ years of experience in crafting content for companies of every size, in a variety of industries. I enjoy combining my affinity for storytelling with an analytical mindset to write and build content strategies that harness the power of data-backed stories, creating strong connections and developing lasting brands along the way.
After graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in news-editorial journalism, I have since worked in reporting, book publishing, digital content, social media, and content marketing. I credit my journalistic background for a natural curiosity that pushes me to constantly research and tackle new topics, industries, projects, and audiences with enthusiasm and tenacity. Book publishing honed my editor's eye, digital publishing gave me some digital chops, and marketing made me realize this is where I wanted to be all along. It has all combined to make me a stronger writer, editor, and marketer.
A native of the Chicagoland area, I have also lived in Indianapolis and New York City before returning to Chicago. In my free time, you can find me reading, taking a hip-hop yoga or spin class, listening to a podcast, or watching any Netflix true crime content I have yet to consume.
