About Melissa

Thanks for visiting!

I’m a writer and content strategist based in Kingston, New York — a large-to-us small town nestled between the mighty Hudson River and majestic Catskill Mountains.


I have more than a decade of experience in the publishing industry as a journalist, magazine editor, blogger, and copywriter. I produce researched, thoughtful, engaging copy and specialize in travel, food/drink, and general lifestyle articles. Browse my portfolio here, or reach out to work with me.


As an experienced strategist, I’ve provided copywriting, content planning, and press outreach to nonprofit organizations, music and wellness festivals, health care providers, small businesses, musicians, and event coordinators. View my services below, and let’s see if we’d make a great team.


I wrote an e-book in 2016 — Intro to Social Media Marketing for Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Brands — and published an updated, expanded second edition in 2018. Learn more about the newest volume, or purchase my e-book here.
