Here’s how Diana Kelly Levey’s freelance writing career began…

Before she was a freelance writer, editor, and content marketing writer, Diana loved demonstrating her creative side as a toddler who scribbled on walls instead of paper. Encouraged to further pursue these writing and drawing talents, Diana experienced the thrill of seeing her name in print above an article she penned for the second-grade newspaper.

Deciding that continuing to see her name in print was a worthy career pursuit, Diana worked on her spelling, read as much as possible, and was known for asking a lot of questions at the lunch table in high school.

She studied journalism at Rutgers University and was a staff writer for the college newspaper, The Daily Targum, where she also had a regular advice column. After editorial internships at Redbook magazine in New York and South Jersey magazines, Diana high-tailed it to New York City with her journalism degree and has been working for major media magazines and brands for 20 years.

All of this is to say, Diana really likes to write and considers herself lucky that she created a six-figure freelance writing career out of doing something she loves. Diana’s 20 years of professional media experience include print and digital editing, copywriting, DTC writing, content marketing writing, book projects, social media management and strategy, syndication strategy, white papers, blogging, SEO writing, ghostwriting, and freelance writing coaching services.

She helps clients and brands develop their editorial strategy and establish their voice and tone while creating compelling digital content that drives traffic and repeat visitors.

Diana is at her best when she’s covering topics, products, and services that help people and can improve readers’ lives in some way.

Diana Kelly Levey’s expertise includes health, health care, fitness, weight loss, sleep, sleep products, pet health, skin care, lifestyle features, freelance writing topics, and business profiles.
