It’s a personal passion of mine to demonstrate what great writing can achieve.
I currently work at AMITA Health as a Senior Communications Specialist (previously Staff Writer/Editor) on the Communications and Marketing team. My responsibilities include interviewing SMEs to write content for monthly associate and physician newsletter articles, video/script writing, leadership announcements, HR materials, screensavers, intranet content management and more. I manage our editorial calendar and content, assign stories to freelance writers and photographers and assist with change management communications post-acquisition. I’ve supported and led communication plans for employee engagement, open enrollment, patient safety survey and employee wellness campaigns.
I’m obsessed with company voice, never miss a deadline and an AP Style junkie who’s been turned away from the Oxford comma.
Because I can’t not write (double negative, anyone?), I write fiction in my free time and have edited fiction and non-fiction manuscripts, as well as professional resumes and cover letters.
I am a graduate of the University of Tampa where I received a Bachelor of Arts in English and writing. I graduated magna cum laude with Honors Program distinction in the top 10% of my class. I also received a Publishing Certificate from the University of Denver Publishing Institute.
