Portfolio

I’m an experienced online and offline writer, editor and copy editor. Most recently, I was editor of the award-winning WomenEntrepreneur.com. The site was a recipient of the Bizmore Bizzies Award and was named among the Top 100 Women Sites by Forbes Women. (In February 2011, it was folded into Entrepreneur.com’s new Women’s Center.)

My writing credits include print and online articles and blogs, plus press releases and marketing collateral.
