Content Writer + Strategist

About Me

Travel addict, bookworm, midnight baker. Content Creator & Strategic Storyteller over at That Girl Writes.

I’ve been fascinated by words since I was little. How they fit together, how they sound, how they elicit a reaction. I’m passionate about writing, but more than that, I’m passionate about the impact that a piece of writing can have. The words you choose matter. Ideas live and die by the strength of the words that convey them.

That passion for language led me to a degree in English Literature, 3 years working as an English teacher in Seoul, South Korea, the birth of my freelance writing business, and my current positions in marketing and radio. I’m grateful to be working in a field that not only allows me creative flexibility but constantly challenges me to improve and better myself.

I love helping individuals and brands find the perfect words to bridge the gap between them and their audience. I believe that content should be clear, direct, and thoughtful—it should inspire, entertain, and inform the reader. To that end, I write content I would want to read myself. No dry, academic contortions, keyword-stuffing, or unnecessary jargon.

If creative, conversational content sounds like something you’d be interested in, drop me a line at lindsay@thatgirlwrites.com!
