I am a writer at heart. A freelance journalist and English guru. My passion has always been spotting a relevant news story and informing readers. A tight deadline for a breaking news story, a local feature or an ongoing conflict in your area. A health, community or social issue in which you want to inform the public. A missing article you need in your printed or online publication. Assign an article or I can pitch an article for publication.
As a freelance writer, I take complex topics, conduct research, interview people, and consolidate the information into articles that inform, engage and move the reader. I handle multiple projects and consistently meet deadlines. Creativity, quality and reliability are my key strengths. You have readers to inform and a business to grow, right?
My writing background includes print and online publishing. My journalism experience is in my home state of Texas. I worked as a general assignments reporter for the Laredo Morning Times and the Villager in North Houston. As a correspondent for the Houston Chronicle (This Week) section, I covered county, education, politics, community events and local feature stories.
My marketing experience covers a wide range from creating organizational development training materials as a technical writer; marketing materials and onsite promotion for the childcare and healthcare industries; and creating fundraising letters, brochures, and physician biographies for the healthcare industry for a regional medical center.
Topics of personal interest to me are education, parenting, community, small business, adoption, feature stories, unusual places or events, and of course, anything Texas!
