About Me

As a writer, my passion is effectively connecting people through the written word and through collaborative work. Specifically, this involves creating documentation and procedures, as well as creating, managing, and maintaining new and ongoing projects. I've woven my academic training and job experiences in mental health into a writing career that can serve many industries--academic, corporate, or nonprofit.

Content I Write

Recommendations

Delivers Reader Value & Insight

Deborah created a 900-word blog post for our company 6 days ahead of schedule. She was very responsive and easy to work with, in addition to providing a compelling and polished draft. It's clear she researched the topic thoroughly and understood what points will resonate with our target audience. The information was specific, actionable, and clear, and the tone was approachable and a great match for our audience. I plan to ask her to contribute to our blog again in the future.
