  • Content strategy and planning
  • News reporting and writing
  • Magazine writing
  • Blogging
  • Copywriting
  • Editing
  • Website creation
  • Content management systems
  • Analytics reporting
  • SEO
  • Newsletter creation
  • Social media content creation
  • Photography
  • Videography
  • Video script writing and editing
  • Basic graphic design
  • Media relations
  • Public speaking

My writing has appeared in the Pioneer Press, Star Tribune, Yahoo Finance and I’ve won more than a dozen awards and honors from the Associated Press, National Society of Professional Journalists and the New York Times Company Foundation, among other organizations. To read a more detailed list about my accomplishments and positions, please meet me on LinkedIn.

In my free time, I pursue an eclectic mix of interests. I’m a certified yoga teacher who has taught at several studios around the Twin Cities; I now write about the healing arts for a website I created called Home Studio. I also love music (for two years I played the washboard in a jug band with my friend and mentor David Hanners; now I maintain his music website that I created). I can be found cheering on my friends who play with North Star Roller Derby teams. And I’m obsessed with my cats Kylee, a 16-pound boy who is so sweet and cuddly, and Mittens, a polydactyl girl with a particular taste in humans.
