Natalie DeFee Mendik, MA
Welcome to Mendik Media LLC. I offer a variety of writing and teaching services. With over three decades of international experience to draw on,
Mendik Media LLC allows me to dovetail my talents and skills in teaching, writing, and editorial consulting.
Equine Journalism: As a lifelong horsewoman, my passion for horses has carried over into equine journalism. I am an eight-time American Horse Publications’ Equine Media Awards winner; member of the International Alliance of Equestrian Journalists; and possess an International Press Card. I am also a United States Dressage Federation Bronze and Silver Medalist.
From U.S. Olympic Team members to top university researchers around the world, my equine articles cover the depth and breadth of the horse scene. My work has been featured in The Horse; Horse Illustrated; The Blood-Horse; Young Rider; Breyer Animal Creations Just About Horses; University of Kentucky's Bluegrass Equine Digest; United States Dressage Federation USDF Connection and USDF University Education Library; Equine Journal; Quarter Horse News; HorseChannel.com; Gypsy Horse Journal; Dressage Today; Master of Foxhounds Association's Covertside; American Vaulting Association's Equestrian Vaulting; Draft Horse Journal; Stable Management; Arabian Horse Association's Arabian Horse Life; The Chronicle of the Horse; Florida Sport Horse; Northwest Rider; Multilingual Living Magazine; Pennsylvania Magazine; Pennsylvania Equestrian; Northeast Equestrian Life; Elite Equestrian; Loyalhanna Review; and the FEI World Cup Finals Official Program.
Writing and Editing Services: As a journalist with hundreds of feature articles in international, national and regional publications, I can personalize writing tailored to suit your needs. I can also assist you in editing a current project; I particularly enjoy copyediting independently-published novels.
English Language Teaching Services: I hold a Masters of Arts in Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language from Colorado State University. My experience includes extensive teaching in Switzerland in business schools, private schools, and multi-national companies. I offer tailored English teaching, consultation, tutoring, and on-site in-company courses.
