About Me

Writing has always been my first love.  Though I am a full-time marketing director, I'm always looking for ways to continue writing and welcome any and all freelance opportunities. Googling "by faith boone" is an easy way to find my writing samples.

When I was 14, I created my own newsletter. In high school, I wrote for the teen section of the Tribune Chronicle in Warren, Ohio, still known today as "Page One." In college, I wrote for every newspaper and magazine I could, minus the publication by law students. Three editor positions and what seems like a million clips later, I landed my first job the week before college officially ended.

In Valley View, Ohio, Sun Newspapers is where I learned how beneficial social media is to the news industry. Over two and a half years, I covered more than 10 beats, at one point nine of them at the same time, including municipalities and police departments. I enjoyed meeting interesting people, working with true, uncompromising journalists, and sharing my life adventures through a weekly column. It was also where I began to turn into the social media enthusiast I had no idea I would become. Sun News was a fantastic start for me, but it was just the start.

I moved on from Sun to work at Stevens Strategic Communications public relations and crisis management firm in Westlake. Though my title was Social Media Strategist, I wore many other hats. My main duties were to manage and come up with social media strategies for the firm and several clients. I also gained extensive experience in project management, business management, and marketing.

After working in PR, I returned to journalism. Something for me was missing and News 5 Cleveland helped to fill that hole. I loved the fast-paced, at times chaotic environment, working with passionate journalists again, and, most of all, getting back to writing news and informing the public.

Today, I find myself no longer in journalism but in marketing to better the lives of young people and help them discover their true potential. I am now embracing some of the skills I love most -- web development, graphic design, data analysis, advertising and media relations.

THE DORK IN ME: BAYONETTA 2 WILL COST ME MORE THAN $60

The game is powerful due to its bright colors and Bayonetta’s character in general. We never thought there would be a sequel to this game, but there will be one. However, Bayonetta 2 will be developed for the Wii U only, and I haven’t purchased one of Nintendo’s consoles since the GameCube.
