As Managing Editor of our 5 issue a year membership magazine Imprint, I oversaw all publication details including advertising, article assignments, editing, issue themes and special sections, and cover art and illustrations. Met all publication deadlines over 15 years.
As editor of our 4x a year e-news, I coordinated all articles, and artwork, assigned stories, and produced issues using a variety of publishing platforms. Detailed editing and proofreading were required for this project, as well as the ability to distill the relevant news stories from the magazine to the newsletter.
I wrote and distributed about 50 press releases a year, focused on our board of directors, nursing issues, new programs, and our Foundation news. I secured successful media placements in the top nursing publications, such as The American Nurses, the Nationa League for nursing publications, and others.
I oversaw the Press Room and production of the daily Convention newsletter, printed overnight and distributed too all attendees.
I served as the lead in the launch of our new website, organizing all content and providing direction for the technical team. I also innovated the main interface for the website, using animated giphs and a rotating image gallery to create a dynamic home page and vibrant web presence.
I was the editor for "Getting the Pieces to Fit," our student handbook providing essential details about our activities and events as well as chapter structure and policies. The project required strong attention to detail, as nearly every page required significant updates each year.
