About

I’m a writer with an art background and a knack for bringing out great work in others. Before I launched my freelance career in January 2015, I worked as a creative communications manager for a nonprofit, a copywriter at an agency and a magazine editor for both trade and consumer publications. I’ve also managed content for an app. I put this experience to work for clients in a range of fields—consumer, trade and business-to-business. My strength is my ability to listen to people and truly understand what they need, then help them put their thoughts into words that resonate with their audience. My specialties include: • Writing (copywriting, web writing, ghostwriting) • Editing • Project management • Content & creative strategy • Integrated marketing (print, web, email, social media, events—whatever it takes) Fast facts • 20+ years of communications experience • Bachelor’s degrees in English and Studio Art; MFA in poetry • Upbeat, positive and productive work style, 1:1 or with teams What people say “Her high energy makes work fun while her focus on detail creates outstanding final products.” “She brings a unique mix of big-picture thinking and laser-focused attention to detail.” “She truly cares about the people she works with–and that makes it great to work with her.” “Her grace under pressure and genuine desire to move the organization forward was evident in everything she touched.” “She’s scrupulously conscientious about budget and drives new, more efficient means to accomplish goals.” “It’s never about her. It is always about the team and the goal before them.” "Her keen grasp and enthusiasm for every job to be done spurred me on to turn out the best work I could.” “She gave me the confidence to succeed. I was inspired by how hard she worked.” “Talents go way beyond writing and creative… A woman of faith, generosity and integrity.” Lagniappe It doesn’t have to be my idea….I believe in the power of nice….I make order of chaos.…I give 110%.
