I am a regular contributor to The Charlotte Business Journal, covering a wide variety of industry news for the weekly publication. The Business Journal was my first client when I began freelancing 10 years ago, and I continue to write for the Journal’s weekly reports and special publications.

I contribute to Globe, a trade association magazine, and Profile magazine. Over my career I have written for Business North Carolina magazine; North Carolina magazine (a publication of the North Carolina Chamber); USAirways magazine and other publications produced by Pace Communications; Health Living magazine; and The Philanthropy Journal.

For corporate and nonprofit clients I provide copywriting services for marketing materials, video scripts and press releases and deliver media relations services. I also manage ongoing communications through organizational newsletters.
