Writing and editing: I work with clients to develop their key messages, establish communications plans, create content, perform revisions and do final proofreading. I specialize in corporate news reporting, interviewing internal and external stakeholders and writing news features for company websites, blogs and newsletters. My work isn’t limited to news writing though, I’ve also written:

  • Ad copy
  • Brochures
  • White papers
  • Internal communications
  • Sales presentations
  • Video scripts
  • Speeches
  • Annual reports
  • Business case studies

Public affairs and issue research: In my agency experience, I followed public affairs issues and performed in-depth policy analysis for corporate, nonprofit and government clients. For both public awareness and crisis management campaigns, I’ve conducted legislative, regulatory and media research, producing regular memos on the environment surrounding issues such as universal broadband access, data privacy, financial reform, homeland security, stimulus spending, and airline safety.

Social media strategy and engagement: I’ve advised clients on how to use social media to build their brand and market their products and services. I’ve also executed social media engagement plans for clients launching new iPhone apps, changing institutional policies that affect large numbers of people and announcing upcoming events.

Media analysis and outreach: I’ve conducted media monitoring for a wide variety of clients, tracking issues in crisis management situations and message uptake in public awareness campaigns. I’ve also pitched national publications and blogs, securing coverage in the Washington Post, InformationWeek and ReadWriteWeb.
