Today the spotlight falls on Cory Sekine-Pettite, a freelance writer and editor with nearly two decades of experience "mostly in B2B media with some newspaper experience peppered in there." Sekine-Pettite has managed publications in the food service industry, film and TV production, and for the architecture, engineering, and construction industries. He got his start, however, covering local governments in Clayton County, Ga., for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "My first day on the job was election day!" His advice to aspiring journalists is "Verify. Double-check facts. Never stop learning." As for the pieces he's most proud of writing, he cites his series of profiles on injured soldiers who climbed mountains. For more of his award-winning work, stop by his Muck Rack portfolio here!
