My professional work in media includes writing, editing, researching, and working with people (communications and administrative assisting). Here is a selection of my recent work. 

WRITING

SOCIAL MEDIA

  • Write, design, and produce content for social media channels of successful journalists and entrepreneurs 
  • Work around the clock to ensure that content is posted on time and is formatted correctly
  • Plan and execute social media strategy across platforms
  • Keep up with trends in the digital space on platforms including (but not limited to) Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat

RESEARCH & EDITING

  • Research trends in the digital space on a daily basis (in the past, I've done this for brands like Health.com on a daily basis)
  • Copy edit, fact check, and do background research for articles ranging from print cover stories to web features 
  • Conduct background interviews with key sources 
  • Work on larger research projects, collect data, and present findings on important topics

MEDIA & COMMUNICATIONS

My current position at Atlantic Media has given me a unique opportunity to learn how an all-star communications team is run. Here's an idea of some of what I do as an assistant to the head of communications:

  • Work closely with Atlantic Media's Senior Vice President of Global Communications & External Relations, assisting her with administrative tasks as well as strategic PR operations
  • Daily responsibilities include updating the team on developments in the media industry, compiling media mentions for all six of the company's brands, maintaining the corporate team's social media accounts, and assisting the communications team in pitching and working with other media companies
  • Work on media outreach, developing strategic communications plans, and booking Atlantic Media journalists with a variety of media outlets, including MSNBC, CNN, NPR, and FOX
  • Organize and help with logistics of major company events, including Atlantic Media's White House Correspondents' Dinner weekend 
  • Assist the Atlantic Media communication team with drafting press releases and advisories, as well as media monitoring and research
