Content Marketing: DogVacay x PuppySpot.com
As a Customer Experience Associate at DogVacay (think: a dog Airbnb company) I gathered valuable insights about what makes for a successful pet-sitting stay from both an owner and pet-sitter point-of-view.
Our marketing team partnered with PuppySpot.com, a service connects dogs with people looking to adopt them. I wrote an article all about minimizing separation anxiety (and maximizing the good times) while owners are on vacation, all in the approachable yet knowledgeable voice of DogVacay.
Short Form: Hello Asthma, My Old Friend
A short article about my personal experience with asthma written in preparation for a healthcare panel discussion in my hometown of Fresno, CA called, "Why is the Central Valley Sick?".
The panel discussion was centered around the high rates of medical conditions, such as asthma, in the region along with a large uninsured population. Public health officials and leaders in the healthcare community discussed what could be done to improve the health of the Central Valley.
Long Form: The Key to the Garden
A student profile piece about a family-owned lock and key shop, nestled in the heart of Garden Grove, CA.
I spent 3 months with the family at their shop conducting interviews, and observing as a fly-on-the-wall. I also extensively researched the origin and history of locks and keys for context for my piece. The final piece was submitted for my Literary Journalism workshop, and shorter version was published in Zocalo Public Square for their "Where I go" feature.
