Hi, I'm Tamekia!
I am a writer from Houston, Texas, and cover health, parenting, finances, travel, and lifestyle topics. I am a contributing editor at Parents magazine and have written for many publications, including Woman's Day, Seventeen, Fit Pregnancy & Baby, Parents Latina, Essence, GoodHousekeeping.com, Prevention.com, and Oprahmag.com, among others.
In addition to creating material for magazines and websites, I provide content marketing work for brands such as Johnson & Johnson, madison/miles media, Krames Staywell, and more.
When I'm not writing, I enjoy working out, reading thrillers, going on road trips, and spending time with my husband, son, and two super-spoiled (yet adorable) Shih Tzus. You can see one of my dogs below giving an article a final read-through.
I realized my writing potential and creativity way back in elementary school. The teacher gave a homework assignment that entailed writing a poem about a dog. Instead of doing the usual "write it on a sheet of paper," my second-grade mind decided to spice it up a bit. I got a small poster board, made a cutout of a dog bone, colored it a nice brownish shade, and then wrote THE best dog poem ever. The next day in class, I handed over my dog bone poem and got "oohs" and "ahhs" from my teacher and classmates. A writer was born!
Although that school assignment was many (many!) years ago, I bring the same creativity and innovation to every project. I come up with good ideas, and I work extra hard to make sure copy is easy to read, accurate, and interesting. Editors assign to me repeatedly because they know they can depend on me to turn in good work on time, every time.
