I got my MA from Purdue and PhD from the English Department from the University of Chicago in 2010 and then followed a serendipitous path that started in the not-for-profit world and led to a career in content marketing. Currently, I am an award-winning digital content marketing strategist, writer, editor (over 10,000 hours of writing and editing). Connect with me on LinkedIn
