Allrecipes Magazine

I pitch ideas for, research and write the new “Ask a Vet” column that features advice for pet owners. I also create the table of contents blurbs for each issue and contribute headlines and intros to various stories.

Teen Vogue

This piece was originally written for and published on FreshU, a site specializing in content for college freshmen written by college freshmen. Teen Vogue partnered with FreshU and republished one article from FreshU every week or two. My piece was one of the few selected to be republished on Teen Vogue‘s website.

Iowa Automobile Dealers Association

All of these articles were published in Iowa Auto Dealer, IADA’s bi-annual magazine that reaches hundreds of Iowans invested in the automotive industry’s success. “Home Sweet Home” was the cover story for the Spring/Summer 2018 edition. I contacted sources for each article, conducted research, wrote the articles and was heavily involved in the editing process.

Drake Magazine

I pitched my own take on each story topic for a narrower focus and conducted the necessary research. I interviewed Midwesterners, ranging from chefs and restaurant managers to yoga instructors and artists. I coordinated with photographers for a cohesive final product.

The Times-Delphic

I interviewed multiple sources for each article and met all deadlines with a quick turnaround.

Newsletter Layout

Iowa Automobile Dealers Association

I used InDesign to layout IADA’s Action Update bi-weekly newsletter. I also wrote the majority of newsletter content and edited each final product. Along with each full newsletter PDF, I created individual HTML files for every article and uploaded them to IADA’s website. I used Constant Contact to distribute the newsletter to around 1,000 people.

Video Production/Editing

Drake Digital News

I worked with a partner to film shots and sequences for each of these stories for Drake Digital News and individually edited each video using Adobe Premiere Pro for publication on the site. I also wrote and recorded the corresponding voiceovers for each video.
