Content Management Lead supporting Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

As content management lead, I provided comprehensive web content management of consumerfinance.gov in an Agile environment as well as functional guidance to a content management specialist. In this role, I worked with content strategists, editorial producers, publicists, developers and subject-matter experts to publish the bureau’s press releases, speeches, blog posts and other site updates in Wagtail and WordPress.

I set up a tracker in an email thread that was updated every time content was received, staged, published, etc. The tracker was sent out to stakeholders in editorial, external affairs, design, IT and the subject matter experts.

Initially, consumerfinance.gov was powered by WordPress. I managed the site in WordPress from October 2014 to March 2016. Visit this Internet Archive Wayback Machine link for a capture of that iteration of the site.

Team leader – Media Network of Central Ohio sites, GannettDigital

As a team leader, I collaborated with editors, online managers and other stakeholders to showcase their content, including video, on the sites. Network/partner content and social media was also integrated.

In addition to being the web manager of the 10 MNCO sites, I was on the launch team for dozens of Gannett web sites, migrations and redesigns in the CMS, Saxotech.

All links are from archive.org Wayback Machine, appearing as they did when I managed them with the exception of advertisement graphics I’ve added; The Wayback Machine did not pick them up in their capture. Pages may load slowly due to archive.org addresses.

The top module has the most recent stories, followed by a module from USAToday.com. Below that are keyword-powered modules for high school football, other high school sports and Ohio State Sports. I developed the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals modules to pull in content through the enterprise content management system from enquirer.com, another GannettDigital site. The branding, site analytics and ads (not show on archive.org) are all newarkadvocate.com. This model was used across the 10 sites I managed, though the northern-most sites did not have Cincinnati headlines, but Detroit.

As part of an agreement to print Ohio State’s student newspaper, The Lantern, GannettDigital agreed to host their web site. My duties were getting the DNS transferred to Gannett’s host, setting up advertising and user management.

I’m pointing to an Internet Archive Wayback Machine capture from the time that I worked on it in 2013.
