About Me

My full writing background centers more on creative copy both for lifestyle sites I manage and freelance work I've been commissioned to complete for travel and lifestyle brands. I've worked as a freelance copywriter for several years, working directly with brands ranging from Conde Nast,and Bridal Pulse to IHG (InterContinental & Holiday Inn) as well as providing web copy for several lifestyle, beauty and consumer brand clients via agency contracts. 

I have also created social media copy, press releases, branded articles and blog posts for clients in a variety of industries from financial to publishing, consumer brands, and small businesses in the US, Canada and Japan. As a creative writer, I've often been commissioned to develop SEO friendly content that incorporates specific keywords to help clients rank in targeted searches. 

Outside of writing I enjoy traveling, shopping, crochet, cooking, baking and crafting.
