My name is Maria Amante. I currently live in Brooklyn, NY, where I’ve lived since 2013. For most of my career, I worked as a journalist, and this website served as a personal portfolio to showcase some of my writing samples.

I’m now in the middle of a transition. The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically upended many people’s lives, and I’m no exception. After seven years working as a financial journalist, my position was eliminated as a result of cutbacks stemming from the pandemic.

The circumstances are less than ideal, but it’s led me to reflect, and now I’m pursuing a career change. After more than a decade in journalism, and witnessing so many media companies restructure, it’s time to find a different path and take the skills I’ve acquired into another career. I’m looking at jobs in policy, communications, public relations, marketing and analysis and open to relocating pretty much anywhere.
