Work Experience

A newspaper gal at heart, I wet my feet as a reporter, writer, editor and page designer for newspapers in California and Nevada before transitioning to digital content creation in the Las Vegas tourism, entertainment and hospitality industry. Next, I branched into print and digital copywriting at a leading Las Vegas ad agency and as part of the internal creative teams for local and regional casino-resort companies. 

I’ve  managed editorial for print and online publications, ranging from a weekly newspaper in Marin County to an international travel and entertainment company. While I’m perfectly comfortable interviewing business leaders and celebrities, I’m equally amenable to contemplating the placement of a comma. Writing is my passion. My words have run in print and digital publications around the globe, on signage around the nation, and amid the glowing neon of the Las Vegas Strip.
