Sharon Egiebor, BA, MBA, a Kansas City, Mo., native, believes good communication requires research, attention to detail and a patient ear for listening.
She formed Egiebor Expressions in 1993, as a freelance writing service. Over the years, the company expanded its offerings to include public relations, media relations, small business consulting, and book editing.
Ms. Egiebor was awarded one of 12 international Kaiser Family Foundation HIV Mini-Media Fellowships in 2004 and in 2005 she was awarded a Casey Journalism Center on Children and Families fellowship.
Contracted as executive editor at The Dallas Examiner from 2002-2005, Ms. Egiebor focused on providing up-to-date news, entertainment and analysis that was targeted toward an African American community. This frequently required finding the personal story within a news story and then presenting it in a reader-friendly manner.
Ms. Egiebor, an award-winning journalist, has been published in national, state and local magazines, newspapers and books. As the owner of Egiebor Expressions, a creative writing service, Ms. Egiebor has helped several authors prepare their books for publication. The books have included “Celebrating Life: African American Women Speak Out About Breast Cancer,” “The Love Clinic: The Doctor is In,” and “How to Ride Thunder and Catch Lightning.”
Her professional experience includes eight years at The Dallas Morning News on the Metro, National and Today desks. She began her career at The Dallas Times Herald, working her way from an intern to an editorial board member. She stayed until the paper folded in December 1991. Ms. Egiebor then joined Our Texas magazine as managing editor.
