Freelance content writer

Seeing a bride. Devouring the most delicious, decadent dessert. Taking in the emotion of a perfectly-planned surprise. These are times where feeling a loss for words is good.

Other times, the struggle to find the right words is not so good:

  • Sharing the impact of your nonprofit organization with donors who support it.
  • Showcasing your event via social media in real-time.
  • Explaining to customers why they should choose you over your competitor.
  • Writing your website.
  • Producing a video or PSA.
  • Pitching your organization to the media.

Sometimes you can’t afford a loss for words. There’s too much on the line.

As a professional storyteller, I specialize in content writing. I work with organizations of all sizes and can help you find your words. From traditional content writing projects to writing for SEO, if you need an extra “wordsmith” around, I’d love to explore how I can help.

Award-winning communications pro

After serving in many marketing and communications roles for over a decade, I can also uniquely jump in and help any team. As a strategist, I’ve created communication plans, campaigns and timelines for my clients. As a project manager, I’ve stepped in to organize and audit workflows, and build new processes and procedures. If you need an extra strategic thinker or communications planner around, I may be able to help!
