20 years of experience in writing for regional and national art and history publications, grant writing, and work for local news media.
I have worked in history and art museums in the nonprofit field for more than 20 years. During that time I wrote and published a quarterly newsletter for a local historical society, wrote exhibition text and catalogs, wrote press releases, and wrote pieces for other local history publications. I worked as the interim Communications Manager for a local arts organization writing and distributing press releases and arranging media coverage of events. I have also written history feature articles for national magazines including Jane Austen Knits, Knitting Traditions, and Piecework. I am a regular contributor to Lake Hopatcong News, which features stories related to life on New Jersey's largest lake. I am also the author of Morristown, part of Arcadia Publishing's Images of America Postcard History series. I also have extensive experience writing grants and have secured funding from corporate, foundation, and government agencies on the local, state, and national level. I currently am an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University in their Museum Professions graduate program where I teach Museum Fundraising Fundamentals.
