About Me

As well as being a professional dog walker/pet sitter, I am a freelance writer.

During the course of my life, I have trained in and worked as a: real estate agent, customer service representative, used book merchant, computer network support specialist, office administrator, technical administrator, fast food server, typesetter/desktop publisher, offset press operator, and telemarketer. If I remember correctly, I was also employed at a dry cleaners and in a factory too. And most of those experiences had one thing in common . . . writing.

For many of my employers, I wrote: ad copy and technical documents, procedural manuals, newsletters, internal communications and as technology progressed, I was inclined to use social media as a marketing tool for them. In 2001, I opened A-ha! Writing Services. For seven years I wrote (among other things): business and inspirational articles, instructional e-books and e-zines, marketing collateral, website copy, sales letters, speeches, and radio scripts for ad agencies and businesses. Recently, I have just completed a remote work-for-hire contract for Lifeblood Marketing in British Columbia. I provided them with 450-700 word blog articles, e-mail templates and website copy for 13 of their clients. Industries ranged from a wellness centre to a dog trainer, to various real-estate-related companies.

If you have a writing project and need a hand, just shoot me an e-mail and we'll "talk".
