Cape May County Herald Column - Columnist
In August of 2004 I started a column for the weekly local paper, The Cape May County Herald, called Coastie Life. My column featured stories about Coast Guard life at the Coast Guard Training Center in Cape May, New Jersey. This included everything from boot camp to people profiles to special jobs and daily responsibilities. For this column I was bestowed the Chapel of Four Chaplains Legion of Honor Award.
After two years of writing Coastie Life I switched gears and started writing a much more personal column entitled Cindy's World. Cindy's World has enabled me to be a bit more creative and typically includes personal memoires, humorous life events worth retelling and tongue-in-cheek stories about motherhood and life in general.
Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities (MAC) - Communications Coordinator
Prior to writing for The Cape May County Herald I worked in public relations with MAC. In this position I was responsible for writing promotional materials for the organization's tours, events and community relations. This included media cultivation as well as on-air television and radio appearances. During my employment I published three feature articles on the organization and its role in the community, as well as wrote and presented on the tradition of Victorian Tea, all of which were done above and beyond my job description.
