Oklahoma Gazette

Lifestyles Editor and ShopGirl Columnist

Real life and work life collided to create my perfect job.

I populate and edit the Lifestyles section copy, which includes food, drink, event, beauty, performing art and anything else fun or exciting in the city.

I manage a team of freelancers, as well as keep my eye on any new or up-and-coming talent.

I get to mingle and wine taste and food critique, then I get to write about it.

Weekly, I write ShopGirl, which is a hyper local-themed shopping column that scouts the city for anything from shoes to party decorations.

All in all I get to edit, write, explore and grow personally.

Tate Publishing

Associate Conceptual Editor

Providing an intensive conceptual edit is necessary for every book about to head out to the marketplace.

No matter how well it is written, there is some element of the book (theme, plot, subplot, characters) that can be strengthened.

My job is to access that and guide the author to a polished product.

While keeping the marketability, target audience, and the author's voice in mind, every book is a challenge. However, when all of those elements culminate in success, the hard work is worth every minute.

I'm also passionate about keeping my department and company properly networked in the online community. I work to stay on top of social media trends, utilizing those networking sites to maximize potential and communication.

In January 2011, I was promoted from Conceptual Editor to Associate Conceptual Editor.

Second City Style

Columnist

With the world of fashion at my finger tips, the entire industry was up for grabs!

I was given the creativity to monthly research and write a 400-600 word column that featured trends and how they were more applicable to the everyday person.

The concept and structure was left to me, which allowed me the opportunity to explore and create fun and exciting pieces that fed every fashionista's desire!
