I am a Boston area freelance Social Media Specialist and Blogger with a cross-functional background in law, data analysis, publishing, financial services, insurance and voice recognition, making it in the (somewhat) big city. In addition, I have a Master’s of Science in Interactive Media from Quinnipiac University, where I graduated with a 4.0! Also, I am a HootSuite Certified Professional. So you better believe I know my way around social media.
Furthermore, I have performed SEO tasks for MadLab and its web properties, including NursingJobs.US and Nurse-Recruiter. And this includes blogging and customer relations management. I do freelance blogging and landing page writing via UpWork. Plus I used to be the Director of Social Media and Public Relations for the hardware development startup company Neuron Robotics, LLC and for the energy saving company Home Energies Remedies, too.
In addition, I have blogged for several sites, and I pride myself on being able to blog about nearly any topic, given enough on-point research. Furthermore, I have become an avid podcaster! My first break was on the G & T Show, where we discuss science fiction, and Star Trek in particular. And now I have my own show with my friend Shanna, Semantic Shenanigans. And it is where we cover the intersection points among law, society, scholarship, and fandom. We have a lot of fun so come and join us!
About My Work Experience
I have worked as a lawyer (I specialized in insurance defense litigation, mainly in product liability and construction matters, but I also handled my share of trips and falls, car accidents, and dog bite cases), and as a data analyst for a large financial services corporation. Plus I was a subject matter expert for legal, and a legal auditor for a voice recognition software developing company. Also, I did a turn as a QA tester and, now as a marketer. In addition, I have been a volunteer community manager since 2002 – longer than many respected experts in the field! So this is not my first blog. I love to write and am plugged into social media. You can find me everywhere from Pinterest to Tumblr to Instagram to Google+.
