I’m Margaux M. Henquinet, an editor and writer experienced in journalism and communications. Please visit the pages above to learn about my experience and see samples of my work.
I stumbled into the world of journalism at age 12, when I was asked to write about a “Harry Potter” book release party for my dad’s company newsletter and loved the experience. I went from there to the high school paper and then on to the University of Missouri, where I earned bachelor’s degrees in journalism and Spanish, followed by a master’s degree in journalism.
I worked for three wonderful years as a copy editor for the Chicago Tribune and its sister paper RedEye, where I was able to learn and grow not only as an editor but as a writer, too.
At the end of Summer 2017, I packed my bags to fulfill a longtime dream: spending a school year as a North American Language and Culture Assistant (aka Auxiliar de Conversación) in Spain, helping primary school students learn English while improving my own Spanish.
I recently completed a communications fellowship at a federal scientific research program and am now working as a content specialist at a professional services firm, where every day brings opportunities to challenge myself and to put my writing, editing, design, and social media skills to use in new ways.
