I’ve been a storyteller all my life.
One of the best ways to motivate me to do something is to say, “It will make a good story someday!”
I received my B.A. in History. People have asked, “What do you do with a history degree?” A lot, actually:
- Write. With history, you don’t just write to convey dry information, but to tell a story of events, people, and ideas.
- Research. History requires you to build research skills and seek out numerous sources.
- See the big picture. A study of history often involves looking at trends that develop over decades or centuries.
- Pay attention to details. The historian is concerned not only with the big picture, but the impact of a seemingly minuscule decision by a single individual.
Aren’t those the qualities all good writers should have?
I have written on medical, legal, security, and financial topics at the Washington, D.C.-area content agency Information, Inc (now part of SmithBucklin). Clients included the American Academy of Pediatrics, JP Morgan, the Lab Products Association, the Center for Responsible Lending, and the Legal Marketing Association.
Eventually, I returned to my native Ohio, continuing to work as an independent contractor, developing a reputation for consistently excellent writing and reliability. I branched out to partner with established healthcare and other organizations to create informative marketing content and provide editing and proofreading services.
