My Story

cropped-img_1169.jpg

I wrote my first story when I was eight years old, with a typewriter three times my age. Now, I can tell stories using a variety of platforms.

I’m the Content Manager for UW-Madison Engineering Professional Development, which means I’m telling stories about education, science and engineering. I write news, feature articles, copy for print and digital marketing collateral, and I manage our editorial calendar and content social media strategy. (Check out a recent white paper I put together using Adobe Slate.)

Storytelling has always been a part of my life. When I was in college, I wanted do what most journalists call “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable” through investigative reporting. However, after enjoying an internship at an ad agency after graduation (Cramer-Krasselt), I realized my storytelling abilities could also be used in copywriting and content marketing.

Whether your story is good or bad, I can make it sound great. I’ve been known to turn around solid copy in just minutes.

Contact me to find out more. I’m available for freelance work. Simply email me at tmswriter at gmail dot com.

My work has been published by:

the Wisconsin State Journal
Cramer-Krasselt Public Relations
the Credit Union National Association’s News Now
American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry
University of Wisconsin-Madison’s alumni magazine and epd.wisc.edu

I’ve also helped my teams earn placements in USA Today, Dental Economics, New Beauty, ABCnews.com, Boston.com, Foxnews.com, Washingtonian.com, and more.
