About Me

Gael Gilliland is the founder of The Legacy Recorder which helps every person tell their life story in a simple, intentional way for future generations to cherish. She is actively working with corporations, non-profits, and senior care facilities to help as many people as she can in recording their legacy. She also published The Legacy Recorder Community Guide so that individuals and families can get started on their legacy today.

In addition to The Legacy Recorder, Gael has been a freelance writer for over ten years. She’s worked with businesses and individuals to help them create clear and effective writing. Her projects include several full length books, articles, and social media content for full calendar years.

Gael is fortunate to work with her lifelong passion. From a young age, Gael had the desire to master the written word and help people tell their stories. Her own life experiences in college, motherhood, marriage, and loss have fueled her own story and given it a colorful arc of ups and downs, of losing and finding herself, and of discovering the beauty in every person’s story.  This is why she has made it her mission to get those stories down on paper before those stories fade.
