PREVIOUS PROJECTS & WRITING
DIGITAL & CONTENT MANAGEMENT: I've brought my skills as writer, editor, strategist and digital manager to bear on an extensive array of initiatives, working within and managing multi-disciplinary teams made up of in-house and third party vendors, staff members and freelancers. In the course of my career, I've serve in a range of digital content roles with responsibilities for daily site maintenance, content assessment and strategy, social media and community management, site transitions, editing and uploading of assets in a range of formats into CMS from a variety of sources, working with editorial teams to ensure consistency of content and maximizing the user experience.
Some typical projects include managing an extensive content audit for the food & cooking website of a major FMCG retailer and working with a major educational non-profit on Web site redesign as well as digital transformation of marketing and fundraising efforts.
