Summary of Industry Experience

Marketing

Working at a digital marketing agency has opened Emily's eyes to the ins and outs of the industry. Marketing is not just a job, though, it's her passion. Even when she's not at work she's usually reading content marketing blogs and looking for new and innovative ways to get clients' names out there. She contributes content to her agency's corporate blog (focusing on content curation & social media) and also has experience ghostwriting blogs on small business marketing for marketing agencies.

Health

While working as a reporter, Emily often reported on health issues affecting the community, such as the influenza virus. She also had the opportunity to interview residents with medical issues, including cancer and diabetes, sharing their stories from diagnosis to treatment and all the way to recovery. This allowed Emily to raise awareness for medical conditions affecting people in the community and share information on symptoms and where to get treatment. In addition to these areas, Emily also wrote for a monthly feature called Active Fit, a joint program with the local hospital targeted at helping youths make healthy choices.

Fitness

Fitness was a major passion topic for readers in Central Ohio. Emily often wrote features on local gyms, the latest exercise trends and general fitness tips/advice.

In her personal time, Emily enjoys going for a run and practices yoga daily.

Pets

It would be impossible to count the number of stories Emily wrote about pets. Whether it was visiting the local Humane Society after a major rescue, informing readers about health concerns facing their pets (such as heart worms and canine influenza), she was always showing some love to the county's furriest residents. Emily is also the proud mom of two dogs she rescued from her local animal shelter.

Real Estate

Since starting at Writer Access, Emily has delved into the world of real estate. She has completed multiple blogs for a major real estate listings company, several of which were rated at "exceeds expectations." It's an area of writing that continues to intrigue her and challenge her creativity.

Insurance

Emily has completed several projects for insurance companies who have sought to provide helpful information to homeowners and car owners. Topics have included everything from how to winterize your home to things to consider before allowing someone to borrow your car and how they can impact insurance policies.

Food

While working as a reporter, Emily often covered stories on local restaurants and wrote lifestyles pieces on favorite recipes and food trends. She has also written and edited a number of blogs for restaurants, catering companies and bars in her role as a digital content specialist.

Business

Writing business articles and blogs is a challenge Emily welcomes. During her time at the newspaper, she often had to sub-in on the business beat. Stories included covering new businesses, longtime staples in the community and economic trends/outlooks for the area.

Utilities

As a digital content specialist, Emily has overseen hundreds of blogs relating to contract services, including plumbing and HVAC businesses. She has written and edited blogs on various topics in these industries, such as when to change your HVAC's air filter, how to spot a leak in your plumbing system and everything in between.
