Corporate/Non-Profit

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.

I’m currently working on stories for Bristol-Myers Squibb’s In Site Magazine and recently finished, along with my designer, Deirdre Reznick, a web site for the firm Mind/Hand. We are also in the fourth year of producing a series of promotional publications chronicling the first four years of Teachers College’s Executive Masters Program or XMA. In addition, I provide editorial consulting for College For Every Student (CFES). Links are below.

For module III, which focuses on helping executives better understand themselves and how they interact with others at work, we included short films in our approach and the finished product became a flip book, corresponding with the program’s offering iPads to each of its participants.
