I am a writer, interviewer and editor with experience producing award-winning magazines (both online and in print), books, articles, annual reports, website copy and marketing materials for corporate, non-profit, and academic institutions. I am currently writing stories and managing projects regularly for Rutgers University New Jersey Medical School, The Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Lehigh University. I also work closely with Mike Lanctot at EMS Responsive on websites.

A graduate of Penn State University, I earned my BA in journalism, wrote for The Daily Collegian and graduated cum laude in three years. I was the senior writer/editor at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (now Rutgers) for 12 years where I produced Pulse, a 40-page magazine for New Jersey Medical School. I also wrote for UMDNJ Magazine, and was the project director for the annual report. My projects, including slideshows, have won national awards. I have been on staff at Ladies Home Journal, Woman’s Day, Family Health, Woman Magazine (editor-in-chief), McCall’s Magazine, and was also the Director of the Infants and Children’s Laboratory at the Good Housekeeping Institute. I am the author of eight books, including Jackie Cochran, The Autobiography of the Greatest Woman Pilot in Aviation History, and my publishers have included Doubleday, St. Martin’s Press, McGraw-Hill and Bantam Books.
