Cover Letter

During my career, I’ve served in an editorial role for several B2B publishing firms. I’ve written and edited copy for niche industry audiences that include logistics, the automotive aftermarket, finance and most recently, agriculture. As an editor, I’m accustomed to executing production duties on a tight schedule as well as managing writers to create concise, industry-related copy.

I’ve also parlayed my experience to become a copywriter for an online retailer, an internal communications specialist for a financial organization and a public relations associate. I learned the value of working within a team of creative people to craft content for online and print consumption. I have overseen projects with sales and marketing teams from creation to fruition.

I take great pride in my professionalism thanks to my military experience. Because of that, I’ve been able to adapt to any situation in my career.
