I am a copy editor and associate project manager in Austin, Texas, with experience covering travel, food, entertainment and human interest. As of September 2020, I am a Certified Associate in Project Management (PMI), and I am eager to apply my skills and knowledge toward your company objectives.
Most recently, I was a full-time copy editor for Travelzoo. As senior copy editor, I was in charge of the copy editing team and oversaw quality for all published content. See my resume for details.
Before that, I worked as a content writer for FarePortal, where I wrote and edited landing pages and marketing emails for the various CheapOair brands; pitched and wrote for our Miles Away travel blog; and contributed toward our marketing campaigns.
It didn’t fit on my resume, but in my spare time, I was also the senior contributing copy editor for AList Magazine from 2012 until it stopped publishing recently.
I’ve interned for companies such as tech startup Sprinklr, Rolling Stone, Digital First Media’s Thunderdome, Lucky and Redbook, among many others. On the education side, I have a Master’s in Journalism from NYU and a Bachelor’s in Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
If you’re wondering about the lack of Oxford/serial commas on this page, it’s because I’m accustomed to using AP Style professionally; however, I don’t have a strong opinion for or against such punctuation.
I’m passionate about colorful, compelling, accurate writing and am experienced in both print and online journalism covering a variety of topics including travel, entertainment, local news, beauty, fashion/style, personal finance, food, relationships and lifestyle.
One piece I’m proud of is from my first semester at NYU; I was inspired by M. Alice LeGrow to look into the lives of women who work as birthday party princesses. Read it here: A Tale of Professional Princesses
