About Me

I have 11+ years' experience writing and editing business content and marketing collateral, including social media, short- and long-form blogs and articles, emails and landing pages, e- and print books, and in-depth training resources. 

My sweet spot is taking highly complex (even dry) content and making it accessible and engaging to readers. I work with a wide range of industries (technology, real estate, leadership/professional development training, software, agriculture, construction, health care, and small business to name some), and I feel comfortable writing on most topics. 

In other words, regardless your industry or the size of your business, I can develop, write, edit and manage the content you need to execute a high-quality, customized content campaign. 

While my passion is writing, I served as an executive editor for 6 years and supervised a virtual team of full-time, part-time, and freelance writers, editors and designers. I bring to the table editing chops, strong communication and time-management skills, and an insider's understanding of both marketing and production.
