I wrote a press release for, for its initial launch mid-September 2010, in my capacity as a Public Relations contractor. You can contact founder Jessica Chapman at jessica at laterdog dot com.

Newsletters | Email Marketing 

Below is a sample of a newsletter I designed and edited from given content, using Constant Contact in my year-long position as Vice-President of Public Relations for the Kappa Delta Alumnae Association of the Texas Hill Country; this is the August 2010 Newsletter. I held this position on a volunteer basis.

At Yoga Yoga I generated content for several weekly and monthly newsletters as needed, in addition to editing them all. All newsletters from June 2012-October 2012 were my sole responsibility. An archive can be found here.
