About Martha

I am an experienced writer, editor and journalist who has the talent, conviction and intellectual curiosity to find the great story that needs to be told. I love to break news, inspire conversation and win attention for important issues and causes. I have written or edited work that has appeared in print news and feature magazines, as well as in blogs, social media, business communications and nonprofit outreach campaigns.

I can take on pretty much any topic: health, education, law, criminal justice, arts, public policy. My stories, told in the most compelling, engaging way possible, have shaped news coverage, prompted policy changes and inspired reader engagement about important issues: mental illness, student stress, substance abuse, health care policy, economic development and public safety.
