Background

With more than 30 years of experience as a journalist, including an extensive career as an editor and reporter at The Washington Post, I covered politics, health and psychology, business, and spirituality. As well as editing the Post’s premier local business section, I authored award-winning front-page international, national, and regional features.

After my tenure at the Post, I served as principal media strategist at the American Bar Association, where I ghost wrote columns on national politics and policy for the nation’s leading legal thought leaders. My team of writers and strategists produced 100 to 200 speeches annually, as well as opinion columns, talking points, press releases, tweets, and other material.

At Pew Charitable Trusts, a $5 billion nonprofit based in Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, I served as chief writer for the CEO. I created communications materials – including speeches, presentations, and correspondence – for board members, donors, and corporate and political leaders.
