About Me: Writer, Consultant, Photographer

I'm a Cape Cod-based writer and editor with over 20 years of experience in the non-profit, public, and corporate arenas.  I began my career at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, where I built skills in educational, fundraising, and museum writing (exhibits, scripts, multimedia projects).  

After leaving the Franklin to start my own writing and consulting business, I quickly gravitated to projects involving innovative educational writing for clients ranging from major corporations (AT&T, Smithkline Beecham) to federal agencies to top publishers (Scholastic, Harcourt, Time) and non-profit educational organizations (National Geographic, Smithsonian, and many others).  More recently, I have taken on a variety of corporate and government training projects for organizations such as WIC (Women, Infants and Children) and Harvard Business Publishing.

My specialties include:
  • Development of interactive video and multimedia scripts, exhibit labels, interactive exhibit devices, planetarium scripts and related materials for museums, universities, federal agencies, and educational organizations.
  •  Research and development of digital educational materials (lessons, multimedia, web-based interactives, articles) for educational publishers, universities, corporations, and museums. Clients include The National Science Foundation, Pearson Publishing, The Smithsonian Institution, Drexel University, Harvard Business Publishing.
  • Development of print books and curricula for children and adults for clients including Time, Harper Collins, Scholastic, National Geographic Society, and a wide range of museums and universities.
  •  Development of web content (articles, blogs, social media) for children and adults. Clients include The New York Times Company (About.com), Earthzine.org (NASA/IEEE), Tonic.com.
In addition, as the About.com Guide to Autism and the author of a book on autism in the community, I also provide consulting and presentations on inclusion and engagement to museums, community organizations, educational organizations and parent groups.
