It's nice to meet you!
I am Megan Marples, and I'm an award-winning journalist who wants to contribute valuable work to your organization.
My focus is in multimedia journalism with an emphasis on travel, health, science, wellness, and lifestyle topics. I write stories, take photographs, shoot video, produce podcasts, anchor broadcasts, run social media accounts and analyze performance metrics.
My coverage has spanned from stories about NASA's space exploration to the Tokyo Summer Olympics. If you need a writer who can quickly adapt and write stories on a variety of topics with SEO in mind, I'm your person.
I have helped nearly a dozen companies run their social media accounts and am currently the social media manager for CNN Travel's Instagram. I created a workflow for their posts and stories -- from ideation to publication.
My goal is to create high-quality content that is relevant and helpful for your organization. I also want to continue contributing to the way people digest information and learn about the world.
I graduated from Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism with my master's degree in mass communication. I also earned a bachelor's degree in journalism and a minor in tourism management from the same college, graduating top of my class in two and a half years. I also graduated from Barrett, The Honors College and completed my thesis, Experience Ireland, at goexperienceireland.com.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling to different countries and exploring their heritage sites. Some of my favorite places I've visited include Ireland, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.
