With more than 16 years of professional writing and editing experience in her arsenal, Dawn knows how to create content that engages audiences and meets client goals. Her writing specialties are personal finance, family topics, higher education, careers, and the content marketing industry. Dawn’s writing plan of attack is two-fold: A no-nonsense approach to clean, accurate copy; and, when appropriate, a creative spin and reader-friendly tone that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Of course, her skill set is as serious as they come.
Her career began in the traditional print journalism way, in which she honed “old school” reporting skills while earning her Master of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communications from New York University. From there, she went on to become a print magazine editor, juggling heds and decks, pull quotes and sidebars. Along the way, she’s added social media savvy, SEO expertise, and blogging know-how to the mix. Dawn can help you with corporate editorial services and ghost writing, too.
In short, Dawn has morphed into a content creation machine, with publishing credits including Family Circle, Parents, WomansDay.com, CreditCards.com, CreditCardGuide.com, University Business, Amex OPENForum, NewsCred, Chief Content Officer magazine, ContentMarketingInstitute.com, and many more.
No matter the medium, Dawn understands the value and power of content from both a writer’s and editor’s perspective. And deadlines fear her.
