Work Experience & Internships

July 2014 - Present :
Cision, PRWeb Editor

At PRWeb, I draft, edit and revise press releases. I also provide consultancy for preparing press releases and online marketing (in general) via telephone, email and chat.

Oct. 2012 - July 2014 :
The Washington Post, Editorial Aide and Copy Aide

As an editorial aide, I assisted the KidsPost's department in any of its duties, including preparing the "Birthdays of the Week" section for publication, updating weekly weather art and "CHIP" history factoids, as well as any seasonal sections that KidsPost included throughout the year.

As a copy aide, I assisted the fourth and fifth floors of the newsroom with anything the reporters needed, including fostering them with supplies and processing mail to be sent out to other parties.

As a former social media aide to The RootDC, I updated the section's Facebook and Twitter pages with the latest content, engaged readers with follow-up questions about the content and edited and posted many of its articles to the Web, in addition to promoting them on social media.

Feb. 2012 - Aug. 2012 :
WHYY, Volunteer

Completing research and write-ups for the Arts Calendar on WHYY’s NewsWorks.org website was my main task. Robin Bloom, my coordinator, gave me press releases on activities in the area and I would write summaries about them, which would then be posted on the site.

Sept. 2011 - Dec. 2011 :
PhiladelphiaNeighborhoods.com/NEastPhilly.com, Student/Student Intern

Publishing news stories was my main task. The PhiladelphiaNeighborhoods.com portion was a 4-credit class I took at Temple University. However, I was asked to pitch and find stories, conduct interviews, record sound, take photographs, produce and edit videos, and post complete packages online for both sites. The beat I covered was Northeast Philadelphia.
