All Work by Industry
Now that you’ve had a chance to take a look around, let me tell you a bit more about myself. With a Bachelor’s degree in journalism tucked tightly into my suitcase, I moved to New York City with little more than a few bucks, a fear of subways and one very big dream. Before long, I became a staff writer at Financial Planning Magazine. I hadn’t a lick of experience in the financial industry, so I did what any good reporter would do – spoke with as many people as I could, read more books than I care to remember and asked questions, lots of questions. Within a year, my hard work paid off when I was promoted to senior editor and, six months later, deputy editor.
Feeling that I was destined to write about more than mutual funds and long-term care insurance, I sought a position that would better suit my passions. Before long, a beautiful culinary magazine in St. Louis called Sauce hired me as senior editor. Once again, I immersed myself in a new world, meeting talented people and tasting some truly wonderful food in the process. I was hired to edit and manage all of Sauce’s online content and write several pieces for each print issue. But before long, those two hats multiplied, and I am now the managing editor responsible for conceptualizing, planning, managing and editing all editorial content.
Fortunately, I’m still able to write as well. It's a good thing, because I'm happiest when I'm being creative and when I am able to see a project I've worked hard on finally come to fruition. Writing constantly pushes me – to learn more, to read more, to make each story better than the one before it. No matter how much or how often you do it, writing is never easy. And while this fact can make the days long and the work daunting, it gives me great pride in what I do.
