Since 1997, when I began editing Clairol’s Beauty & Beyond newsletter, I have worked regularly on internal publications for a variety of companies including Bristol-Myers Squibb, American Express, Deloitte, Pfizer, Franklin Credit Management and the Stillwater Group. I have also worked on similar publications for such non-profits as the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the Rockefeller Foundation and Sarah Lawrence College.
My services include managing, writing and editing recurring magazine-style newsletters as well as external publications on diversity efforts and charitable work; drafting internal communications including voice mail talking points, desk-drop letters, video script, memos and transition brochures; writing feature articles on assignment and editing or polishing presentations.
My goal in all of my corporate communications work is to tell your story your way through bright, well-packaged brochures and newsletters that grab your audience’s attention and hold it.
Because I come to projects from outside organizations, I can provide fresh insight. As a result of my extensive experience—in corporate, academic and non-profit settings—I’m comfortable taking on project-management responsibilities; I can work with your in-house designers and photographers or bring in my own experienced team for your project.
I’m currently working on stories for Bristol-Myers Squibb’s In Touch Magazine.
