I am a writer and communications consultant based in Ithaca, NY. Before launching a freelance career in 2010, I worked for over ten years as a corporate writer in the diverse fields of biotechnology, higher education, food service, and agrimarketing. Guiding professionals and executives in these fields, I honed my skills producing newsletters, magazine articles, press releases, websites, video scripts, laboratory reports, conference posters and oral presentations, among other marketing and public relations documents.

My fiction has appeared in numerous literary magazines and received several awards/honors. Most recently I received a fiction fellowship from the Community Arts Partnership and was a finalist in Saranac Review's short fiction contest. I hold a bachelor's degree in communications with a concentration in science writing from Cornell University and an MA and PhD in English from Binghamton University.
