I’m a writer and editor. (And I love both of those jobs.)
I began my career with a regional business newspaper in the Southeast. Since then, I’ve edited a GAMMA award-winning monthly women’s magazine with print and digital markets across the United States, co-authored a book and written a wide variety of pieces on food, travel, beauty and green living, plus hundreds of profiles. (I believe everyone has a story to tell.) I’ve written features, ad campaigns, brochures, blog posts, front-of-the-book items, headlines, captions, daily deal copy, children’s educational programs, reviews and essays.
In addition, I’ve managed social media for a large nonprofit, including developing content for the organization’s web site, email and print marketing materials and social media outlets. I created and implemented the organization’s social media policy and launched its blog. Under my leadership, the organization’s social media reach doubled in just six months, and the blog I launched for the organization was featured on the front page of WordPress.com.
I’ve interviewed some amazing people, most notably Alice Waters of Chez Panisse and Eve Ensler, playwright and author of The Vagina Monologues. I’ve spent the past decade working as an editor and writer for magazines in Charleston, S.C., Savannah, Ga., and Charlotte, N.C., but I’m always on the hunt for the next freelance idea. (Have one? Email me!)
Wondering how to pronounce my name? Here’s a hint: It rhymes with Sally.
