Every story has a purpose.
Or at least it should, regardless of whether that story is an investigation for an online magazine or a donor relations piece for a university or nonprofit.
I’m a writer for both news outlets and higher education institutions and I make sure every story meets its purpose through intentional reporting and brisk, character-filled writing, all while applying the highest standards of accuracy.
A journalist by trade and training, I’m adept at asking the questions that yield those story-making tidbits, then arranging a multitude of complex and convoluted information into a narrative that actually makes sense. I’m also skilled in teasing out the narrative arc and dropping in the details that will ensure a communications piece meets its objectives, whether that’s stewarding donors, impressing alumni, recruiting students or drawing in new supporters.
