Solid writing is good. Great storytelling is better.

Hi, I’m Melissa — I’m ready to tell your story.

Through more than 20 years of professional experience, I’ve solidified my skills in research and writing and narrowed my focus to great storytelling. Whether it’s a national magazine article or a company’s annual report, I’ve found the key to engaging readers is in identifying the best story and telling it well.

The people and places I cover come alive on the pages of regional and national publications. With background as a business reporter, I convert complex business ideas into reader-friendly stories. And my adventures in parenting become stories for national publications and my own blog.

I’m a magazine writer creatively covering travel, features and profiles for¬†publications like Parenting¬†and New Mexico Magazine. I’m also a corporate copywriter developing compelling content for client communications, newsletters, annual reports, magazines, blogs and websites of organizations including St. Pius X High School, Thelma Domenici & Associates, the University of New Mexico and New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority.
