Freelance writer, editor, public relations specialist
I’m a communications professional with an educational background and hands-on experience in the human services field. I
have the compassion and understanding to write compelling copy about sensitive subject matter.
In addition to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Northeastern University, I have five years of experience working in
the field. My background includes individual and group therapy, vocational counseling and activity planning.
At Vinfen Corporation (2008-2009), I combined my human services know-how with
communications expertise, serving as Senior Communications and Public Affairs
Specialist. I helped raise the profile of Vinfen, a large nonprofit human services
organization, with placements in the Patriot Ledger, Boston Globe and many other
local media outlets.
Through my writing, editing and public relations work at Vinfen, I cultivated relationships with supporters, sponsors and
donors. I also wrote, edited and coordinated design of The Voice, the organization's quarterly newsletter, and developed a
Web version which was e-mailed to large audiences.
In addition, I served as Webmaster for the Vinfen Web site (www.vinfen.org), with a focus on keeping content fresh, adding
new pages and photos, and driving more traffic to site. I supported Vinfen staff by writing, editing and designing brochures,
annual reports, fact sheets, speeches and other materials as well as assisting with development and crisis management.
