I am a writer and editor living in Amador County, California. Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I now live in the same small Sierra Nevada foothill town where my Serbian, Italian, and Irish ancestors settled four generations ago. I have lived in Amador County as a permanent resident since 2001.
As a writer and editor, I work extensively as a website copywriter, for both web developers and directly with small business owners, and I especially enjoy the marketing side of business writing to support small business goals. I have experience with social media marketing, press release distribution, and Constant Contact email marketing efforts. I have also worked as a technical editor in electronics manufacturing for the past eight years.
My other writing and editing experience includes articles, feature stories and ghost-blogging, and spans a wide variety of other industries: software/tech, business, food & wine, health & fitness, healthcare, and hospitality, among them.
My personal creative writing projects include a memoir (in progress), and two blogs, Surreal Housewife, chronicling my ongoing work as a maternal scientist, and Amador Food & Review, which is a purely for fun Facebook page revolving around my love of food and enjoyment of writing and talking about it. Writing about food, cooking, and dining out is rooted in my 14 years in the restaurant industry, which I loved, and being a proficient home cook who enjoys trying new recipes or just experimenting with new foods and flavors.
Thanks for reading! If you have a project you’d like to discuss, drop me a note.
