I graduated from the University of New Hampshire in May 2010 with a BA in Journalism. I’m from Marblehead, Massachusetts but am now a proud Boston resident. I am currently the Senior Content Marketer for Grasshopper.com in Needham.
Becoming the Writer
I never knew I wanted to be a journalist until my junior year at Marblehead High. I wrote a story about being adopted and the adoption process as a whole. The story was published in my town paper. The feedback from the town was shocking. Until that story, I never knew how important the power of the written word was.

I’m a little sorry to say I’ve taken a break from newspaper journalism for the past 6 years, and have switched my attention to online writing. But who cares, as long as I get to write, right?
And at my new job, I most definitely do. I have the pleasure of running a number of content projects including, brainstorming article topics for business professionals and designing course lesson plans that will educate entrepreneurs on how to start or improve their business.
And I love it.
