Hi! I'm glad you found me.
What I do is simple. I write and edit for anyone in need of words. I work with all types of clients, but one thing never changes: I love providing a service that makes my clients' jobs a little easier. I love that my clients know I'm on it — which means they can get back to the work that only they can do.
Coming from a PR and marketing background, I bring an audience-focused perspective to every project I take on. I enjoy juggling several projects at once, and the ability to write about topics ranging from farming to railroads to children's mental health really floats my boat.
Has "write a blog" been on your to-do list for weeks? What about that press release, or those staff bios for your website? I'd love to help out.

Look. I love Netflix as much as the next binge-watcher. I'm guilty of consuming shows that I didn't even realize I cared about until I was nine episodes deep. But I don't usually re-watch any of them. "The Crown" was different.
Two years ago today, the death of a favorite high school teacher shook me to the core. Maybe it was the suddenness of it — Mr. Duffy was only 51 when he died. Maybe it was the irony of it — as our freshman year English teacher, he was the one who taught us to "seize the day" and take the road less traveled by, since life was so short. Maybe it was
If you're in the communications world, you may already have an organizational "style guide" for design elements. These often specify the fonts, colors, logo specifications, and other design components that need to be consistent across all of your materials. Editorial style guides focus on consistency of the written and spoken word.
I wasn't sure if I should post this because I don't like to fall short on my goals or promises. And when I do, I usually keep those shortcomings to myself like any self-respecting introverted people-pleaser. Also, I don't usually blog this often :)
Since I set out on my own to freelance full-time, I've received a lot of the same questions. Even though 35 percent of U.S. workers (and counting!) are freelancers, I'm realizing that for everyone else, working from home can seem like a loose concept shrouded in mystery!
