Welcome to my portfolio! My name is Christina Vogt, and I’m a 22-year-old digital news editor and freelance journalist from southern New Jersey. I recently graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, as a member of the class of 2017. There, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism & Media Studies, and in three minors: Business & Technical Writing, Spanish, and Women’s & Gender Studies.
I’m absolutely passionate about writing, and I’ve been working on building my journalistic skills and repertoire over the past few years. My first ever gig was at TRIM Magazine, an on-campus lifestyle publication at Rutgers, as a copy editor for the web department. Shortly after, I worked as a student tutoring intern in Rutgers’ Plangere Writing Center on the College Avenue Campus. During the summer of 2016, I landed an editorial internship at Everyday Health, Inc., in New York City, where I wrote and edited a number of byline news stories, fact-checked and updated existing stories, interviewed several medical professionals, transcribed interviews, and collaborated with my fellow interns on a project, in which we designed a mock app geared towards parents of children with autism and presented it to the Everyday Health executives. Around the same time, I also began transcribing interviews remotely for freelance style and beauty writer Kari Molvar. I continued working with her throughout my senior year at Rutgers, until May 2017.
Now, I am an Assistant Digital News Editor for HMP Communications, LLC, where I write medical news stories primarily for Consultant360.com. I occasionally contribute to several other HMP publications, such as Consultant360 for Pediatricians, Interdisciplinary Autoimmune Network, and Journal of Clinical Pathways. Additionally, I am a remote freelance media journalist for Blasting News, a digital news site for which I write news stories spanning over various topics of my choosing.
As I said earlier, I love writing and all things related to journalism, and I’m always open to new opportunities! To contact me, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply click the “Contact” tab on this website.
