Originally from Baltimore, I moved to Brooklyn in 2010 to attend graduate school. In May 2012, I earned a MA in journalism from NYU. Prior to that, I attended Susquehanna University, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in communications. Though my degree is in communications, I took extensive coursework in English, specifically 17th to 19th century British literature.

I have experience working with children from infancy through age 14. I have worked as a camp counselor and at a children's science museum. I come from a large family, including two sisters and countless cousins, so I am more than capable of not only getting through to a range of children, but of having some fun in the process.

I currently work as an assistant editor at a business-to-business publishing company in Manhattan. My daily duties include website editing, copyediting and designing and laying out magazine pages using Adobe InDesign CS6. I also have experience using Quark Xpress 9 and am well-versed in Photoshop, Illustrator, the Microsoft Office suite, and MLA and AP style.

I'm sure I can meet your tutoring needs, and I hope to work with you soon! Please don't hesitate to contact me for additional information or a resume. Thanks!

Desktop Publishing

I currently serve as a copy editor/designer for a publishing company. My job requires that I design and layout pages using Adobe design software, including InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.

Prior to this position, I served as an editor at another publishing company, where I was similarly responsible for magazine design. This position required me to use Quark.

I have an MA from NYU in journalism, as well as a BA from Susquehanna University in print communications. At Susquehanna, I worked on the newspaper for 4 years, 3.5 of which were spent as an editor responsible for laying out and editing pages of the newspaper. using Quark.

I have also worked at the Daily Item in Sunbury, PA as a copyediting intern, where I designed a number or sections for the daily newspaper using InDesign.

I am happy to provide clips or a resume if necessary.
