Summary of Industry Experience

Pets

Dogs are Kathy's passion. She trains them (and their owners) and articles to help people achieve the best relationship with their pets are her favorite assignments. Kathy's professional experience includes obedience training, behavioral problem solving, grooming and diet recommendations, as well a working with children and dogs.

Travel

Kathy has written dozens of resort descriptions for use in travel agency marketing. The challenge she finds in these tasks is to make each resort stand out and not sound like the other locations with similar settings and offerings. Writing these pieces also serves as a mental escape to these wonderful destinations.

Hospitality

Having organized many events, Kathy looks forward to writing about party planning ideas and the like. She has years of experience in catering, from set up and decor to execution and service. Kathy also has extensive experience in planning company, church, community and family outings through her work with professional sports teams.

Sports

Much of Kathy's sports-related writing has been through a full-time salaried position for various baseball teams and aren't included in the number listed here. Press releases, marketing materials and program articles were the bulk of the work over the course of 10 years. In addition, she's recently written articles on injuries, agents, scouting and Little League equipment.

Legal

Kathy spent a year in the marketing department of a law office, writing and designing the materials for a 150+ lawyer firm. Her journalism education provided her with a solid knowledge of legal ethics. Her ongoing interest in the law continues to spur her personal research into the field.

Craft

While an avid crafter at home, Kathy never wrote about it until recently. She finds these articles to be some of the most fun to research. From Christmas decorations and do-it-yourself gifts, to wedding favors and home decor, offering creative ideas and clear instructions is what attracts Kathy to these articles.

Food

Kathy enjoys writing non-recipe articles that explore fun ways to use food. Her personal experience in cooking for herself gives her insight into creative ideas for meals for one. Extensive catering and party planning experience provides her with a solid background in more elaborate menus and their presentation.
