Welcome to my digital portfolio!
I am a senior at The College of New Jersey's Honors Program majoring in Journalism and Professional Writing with minors in Communication Studies and Interactive Multimedia. I am seeking a position on a digital editorial team where I can incorporate interactive storytelling for a widespread audience.
I have spent nearly three years honing my skills as a journalist and am well-versed in producing health and lifestyle editorial pieces among digital and social media platforms. I gained valuable industry skills as a Digital Editorial Intern for "The Dr. Oz Show" in Summer 2019 during its 10th Anniversary and as a Medical Editorial Intern for the Medscape/WebMD platforms during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, I am interning at CNN as an editorial intern for 'CNN Underscored,' producing health, style, tech, and travel content for CNN.com during Amazon Prime Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping cycles.
I also apply my strong interest in health-related content as a National Lifestyle Writer for Her Campus Media. I gained extra exposure in the newsroom as a "Vital Signs" health columnist for The Signal, my college's student-run, award-winning, weekly newspaper.
Not only do I love to work on a content management system but I also enjoy incorporating visuals into my pieces. I have created digital graphics images on Adobe Photoshop to accompany some of my written work, having been published on HerCampus.com and CNN.com.
Whether I am collaborating with an editorial team or brainstorming original content to pitch, I am consistently focused on audience engagement, SEO strategy and creative direction.
When I am not shuffling through news sites online and newsletters in my inbox, I enjoy reading new books, journaling, spending *too much time* on Pinterest and browsing lifestyle blogs (all with an iced coffee in hand).
