I’m a freelance writer with a B.A. in journalism from the State University of New York at New Paltz, where I graduated in December 2014. During my time there, I worked as the interim Features Editor at the SUNY New Paltz student-run independent newspaper, The New Paltz Oracle and as a staff writer. I’m a graduate of the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) 2013 internship program, where I worked as an editorial intern for Woman’s Day.
My work has been published and featured in Woman’s Day, Woman’s Day Latina, womansday.com, The Huffington Post, The New Paltz Oracle and The Staten Island Advance.
My specialties include writing, copy editing, fact checking and researching biology, health, fitness, food, nutrition, science, medicine, healthcare and business.
As a lover of WordPress and all things web-related, I run a personal blog at Go April Go. I’m also the founder and editor of the Gluten Free Initial Blog Network, which includes Gluten Free Hudson Valley and Gluten Free Staten Island.
When I’m not reminiscing about foodie adventures, I enjoy writing about health, stress management, and travel. On the professional end, one of my blog posts for the American Society of Magazine Editors intern blog was spotlighted by the MPA – The Association of Magazine Media.
