A dynamic and award-winning editor, writer, and book author, I have 20 years of experience in the media industry, a knack for narrative and a passion for community journalism.
As a freelance journalist, I cover food insecurity and climate change with the same tenacity and thoughtfulness as traveling with kids; write about the torpedoes and diversity in the workforce for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center; and blog about real estate. Curiosity about the natural world drives my reporting while my spirit of adventure inspires my writing. I have unearthed archeological artifacts in Turkey, scuba dived Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, hiked glaciers in New Zealand, explored 14th century castles in France and stayed on an active U.S. Navy air craft carrier. I am grateful to write about it all for regional and national media outlets and private clients, and am available for assignments.
Before launching my full-time freelance business in 2018, I edited a regional lifestyle magazine for 12 years, establishing its editorial and artistic vision. I streamlined content management, assigned freelancers and staff, drove social and digital growth, and strategized innovative b2b initiatives to build circulation, events, and revenue. Detail oriented, big picture thinker and grammar police all in one.
I have a Master’s Degree in journalism from Boston University, earned a certificate in leadership strategies at Yale University and was a journalism fellow at Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental Reporting. I am an 11th generation Rhode Islander and the fourth generation to lead my family’s publishing business. I literally wrote the book on Newport, R.I. — “Legendary Locals of Newport” in 2013.
