Missy Sheehan is a part-time communications specialist for Platinum PR. Her responsibilities includes writing, editing and proofreading all kinds of public-relations content, from blog posts to press releases and other marketing materials.

Missy graduated from Shepherd University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. After spending a few months in Spain putting her foreign language skills to use, she decided to purse a career as a writer and editor. In 2010, she scored a job as an editorial assistant for RidgeRunner Publishing in Hagerstown, Md.

While employed with RidgeRunner, Missy began writing articles for Hagerstown magazine, its flagship publication. She continues to contribute regularly to the magazine today.

Over the last few years, Missy worked as a newspaper copy editor, a textbook copy editor and, briefly, as a marketing assistant before making the leap into starting her own freelance writing and editing business in early 2014.

Now, Missy divides her time between editing projects, writing articles for publications like Hagerstown magazine, What’s NXT event and entertainment guide and The (W.Va.) State Journal newspaper, and working at Platinum PR.
