Whitney is a full-time freelance journalist and writer with 20 years’ experience. She specializes in online content, as well as magazine and newspaper writing, focusing on health and healthcare, science and technology, medicine, business, education, and volunteerism. She has created bylined and ghostwritten content for nearly 30 academic, trade, and business clients.

Whitney began her journalism and writing career as a freelancer for UPI on Sept. 11, 2001, on Capitol Hill. As news reports of the attacks came in, she quickly shifted from her Senate Banking Committee assignment and covered the unfolding chaos. A year later, she covered the D.C. sniper murders for The Montgomery Journal, the local paper serving the community where the shootings began. So, she’s no stranger to fast-paced work and meeting deadlines — in fact, it’s a work style she’s maintained.

Throughout her career, Whitney has worked in newsrooms and public relations offices. In these roles, she has interviewed countless doctors, scientists, business leaders, educators, and volunteers, producing thousands of pieces of web content, features, blog posts, press releases, and ghostwritten articles.

Whitney can easily pivot between styles and voices depending on the client’s wishes and needs. She is equally adept at creating features, thought leadership articles, how-to pieces, press releases, and research-based informational content.

After receiving her bachelor’s degree in International Business and German from Furman University, Whitney earned her master’s degree in International Print Journalism and Public Affairs from American University in Washington, D.C.
