Personal profiles and features are probably my favorite thing to write. Simply because I love the power of “story” to educate, entertain, and motivate people to take action or make changes in their own lives.
I have penned features for publications of all sizes, including Ladies’ Home Journal, Family Circle, American Profile, and The Washington Post. Some of the most interesting writing assignments I have had were for an HR magazine called HR Innovator. I enjoyed featuring IKEA’s HR practices, for example.
The story highlighted here is a profile on Yvonne Evans, a local McKinney, Texas, resident that I find simply fascinating. My goal: highlight Yvonne’s aesthetics practice and the annual community chicken house tour she launched in McKinney.
