Jan Marie has been writing and editing as a freelancer, copywriter and content marketer for the past seven years. She has Bachelor (B.S) and Master (M.S.) degrees in News-Editorial journalism, and currently works as a digital marketing manager.
Trained as a journalist, her ability to cover virtually any topic comes from the fundamental skills of quickly finding and effectively utilizing credible sources. Working in content marketing for the past five years, she has finely tuned the craft of writing at an angle that supports a brand and its purpose without obviously stating so. In both capacities, the importance of quality and deadlines has been drilled into her work style, as half-hearted content would never cut it for print, won't stand up to online audiences and will not trick Google's algorithms. That being said, late work causes unnecessary disruptions and frustration that can be avoided through organization, work ethic and communication. Working as an editor or content manager, she never liked working with "flakes," and thus never acts as one herself.
As a reporter she covered many local events, people and places. As a freelancer, she started in women's health, then ventured on into legal, technology and marketing. She is available to write for any of these topics, and more.
