I have two books released through HarperCollins/HarperTeen, and have several more projects at various stages of drafting/revision/submission.
As an independent contractor with Prospect Genius, I wrote SEO marketing copy for small business websites across a variety of industries.
I write articles for Dance Magazine, Dance Spirit, Dance Teacher, Pointe, and Dance Retailer News on an assignment basis. Articles have included personal profiles of dancers, teachers, and choreographers, company/school profiles, how-to's, step-by-step breakdowns, business strategies, and more.
I've copyedited both traditionally published and self-published titles. These include: the first edition of American Ballet Theatre's Teacher Training Curriculum, which was published as The Healthy Dancer: ABT Guidelines for Dancer Health, in Fall 2008; a series of short ebooks featuring social media and marketing tips for writers; and Gold Diggers and Deadbeat Dads, a personal finance guide.
During my time as an in-house editor, first at Dance Teacher magazine and then at Dance Spirit, I progressed from assistant editor to managing editor of a small staff. Duties included assigning and editing print and web content, writing print and web content, running brainstorming meetings, maintaining the editorial calendar, and filing freelancer invoices.
