Most of my work in newspapers before 2006 was as a copy editor. Few go into journalism with dreams of punctuating others’ writing, but I found great satisfaction in the work. Once I moved to the Concord Monitor , my duties shifted. I still worry about typos and headlines, but I also design pages, collaborate with reporters, and wrangle online projects.
Business Matters, 2013 edition
I oversaw this 10-page special section for the Monitor. It involved working with freelancers, community business leaders and our news artist to create a cohesive whole.

New Hampshire primary A1, 2012
He may not have had a great general election, but Mitt Romney enjoyed his Granite State primary win in January 2012. I edited and designed A1 and its jump pages. “Mitt’s moment” was my idea, too.

Monitor education reporter Sarah Palermo and photographer Katie Barnes collaborated on this project about a girl facing vision (and life) challenges. I wrote the headlines and captions, designed the section, and edited the text.
