I am an editor/writer/researcher/content provider/Jill-of-all-editing-trades who started as a newspaper reporter 15 years ago. I've covered several beats in my time, including local goverment, police, education, planning and zoning, architecture, scandal and the mundane in Westchester County, N.Y., Des Moines, Iowa, Columbia and St. Joseph, Missouri, and various other places across the United States.

Editing has made me a more precise writer. Web content producing has forced me to be a more concise writer. My 2,000-word personality profiles won't fit in 140-character tweets, but a tease to the longer story will work on Twitter.

I have a diverse range. There are very few topics I won't tackle. I grew up a farm kid in Missouri wine country; I understand agriculture, horticulture and a bit about wine and vinting. I love planning and zoning, and I am a writer among a family of engineers, computer programmers and geotechnical wonks. I learned the jargon, concepts and trends to make polite dinner conversation. I'm a mom of three who has moderated mom chat boards. I can get ANYONE to play nice, from chat board participants to testy authors.
