I am writer and editor with over 17 years of experience writing about business, health care, the environment, politics and local government.
I worked for over a decade as a writer and then associate editor at Business NH Magazine. I also served as the Statehouse reporter for The NH edition of The Eagle-Tribune, environmental reporter for The Keene Sentinel and for NPR in Washington D.C writing, editing and posting news copy.
I now work with nonprofits and business executives ghostwriting books and articles and producing reports, along with reporting for magazines.
Below are a few stories about me:
- I created and launched the Young Reporters Project, designing a program to fit within the college curriculum, while at Business NH Magazine. I taught students how to report and write stories and worked with them to edit theirs individually and in class. I published close to 50 student stories online and in the magazine and taught over one hundred students. The program was a finalist for the statewide leadership development award given by Stay, Work, Play.
- I designed, conducted and wrote a monthly CEO on the Go column, introducing the personal side of NH business leaders through interviews recorded on the run. I went running with over 20 business leaders and had more requests than I could handle. I did this because business is always personal and relationships matter most.
- I served as regular commentator on WMUR-TV during my time as Eagle-Tribune Statehouse Reporter. I was also frequently invited on NHPR and WMUR-TV to discuss business stories I wrote for Business NH Magazine, and as an expert on the economy.
- I am an expert on health care. I have written numerous stories, moderated an event for Anthem Blue Cross in NH and was chosen as one of 11 people to participate in a nationwide health care coverage fellowship in 2012 run by the Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation of Massachusetts.
- I am an active member of my community. I am in my third year on the school board and serve as vice chair, having won two contested elections. For me, school board was my way to find my place in the community.
