Megan Pacella's wide range of expertise and skills includes writing and editing human interest stories, history features, music news and reviews, business content, healthcare content, and healthy living tips.
Megan's first paying writing gig was manning the writing center at Lipscomb University from 2006 to 2007. There, she worked evenings tutoring individual students to become better writers. It didn't take long for her to realize two things: she loved improving manuscripts, and she had a knack for it.
After graduating with a B.A. in English from Lipscomb University, Megan immediately started working for Hammock., Inc, a custom content firm in Nashville, Tennessee. For three years, she helped manage three magazines: MyBusiness, American Spirit, and Soldier and Family Foundations. In that time, Megan rose through the ranks from editorial assistant, to assistant editor, to managing editor.
In 2010, she moved on to Creek Content, a content strategy firm that focuses on improving content for healthcare companies. There, she works on curating and improving healthcare content related to exercise, tobacco cessation, appointment, adherence, and depression prevention. She also writes and edits a bi-annual newsletter for Vanderbilt Orthopedics.
Today, Megan splits her time writing and editing music, healthcare, business, history, and human interest content. Yes, that's a lot of different hats to wear! And she wears each of them well. You can follow Megan's current work and adventures at Megan_Writes.com
Whether you need a friendly editor who will guide you through the process of improving your work, or you need a ghostwriter who will work tirelessly to nail down the tone and scope of your work, ask for Megan.
