Laurie is an award-winning professional journalist who worked for three decades as a newspaper reporter/copy editor. A versatile writer, she covered a variety of topics as a reporter, including health, home, family, arts and entertainment, business, crime and government -- everything from homeless kittens and home-schooled children to murderers and zombies. She also did copy editing, page design and updated the newspaper website and added tags and SEO-friendly headlines. She is well-versed in Associated Press style and enjoys fine-tuning articles. Early in her journalism career, she brought her AP Stylebook on vacation with her and took notes for a cheat sheet she made for her co-workers.

As a freelance writer since 2010, Laurie has written hundreds of articles, blog posts, press releases and video scripts for clients, covering topics as diverse as home organization, technology, video games and heating and air conditioning. She does extensive research and writes concise, engaging SEO-friendly articles, using different styles as best suits what the client is seeking. She has edited hundreds of press releases as a journalist, so she has an idea what a newspaper editor might be looking for.

Laurie quit her newspaper job in 2013 to take on a caregiving role for a family member. She currently does freelance writing, public relations and marketing.
