I line and copy edit three publications on government information
technology: FedScoop, StateScoop and EdScoop. My experience includes
working with freelancers, and coaching writers and interns while writing
three stories a week on federal IT. During our publication’s redesign, I
helped prepare the site for the launch, and established and enforced best
practices for photos and headlines. I also supervised the copy cycles for
our Women in Technology and Coolest Jobs series.

I edited and distributed the All Things Considered rundown, which is
