Content Marketing Consultant, Health & Wellness Advocate, Influencer Marketing, Communications Manager, SEO Copywriting

About Me

I am a Communications Consultant specializing in Content Management, SEO Copywriting, Public Relations, Social Media Influencer Marketing, Reputation Management, Crisis Communications and Corporate Communications.

I can write on just about any topic although my current focus is on health, wellness and mindfulness topics. I have also written many articles focused on the behavioral health and addiction treatment industries. I am available for new consulting, contract and freelancing opportunities for startups, B2B and B2C private and corporate clients.

My work has been featured in many online sites and in print publications and magazines including Thrive Global, Behavioral Sightings, Sober Nation, TransformationsTreatment.center, TreatmentCalls.com, VeggieLife, BackHome, The Herb Quarterly and The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

I have also worked as the Managing Editor for a print/digital magazine and as the Interim Creative Director of Copy for a marketing agency. I cover a variety of health and fitness tips, lifestyle articles and product reviews on my Creative Cottage and Sloth Athletica blogs.

When I'm not busy researching new topics, or writing articles, I enjoy swimming, biking, running, standup paddle boarding and training for endurance events, like triathlons, to support my favorite non-profit organizations. I am currently training to become an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor and have plans to become a Health and Wellness Coach.
