About Me

I work with people, organizations, publications, and brands that wish to build relationships with their audiences by creating valuable content that motivates them to take positive action. Using expert information, inspiring stories, and smart advice, I meet audiences where they are and give them the tools they need to improve their lives. Trained as a journalist, I understand the profound power of storytelling. And I know how to create compelling content that informs, engages, and builds trust. Even now, in an age in which we are bombarded with information, excellent writing commands attention. I create successful content for a wide range of clients (corporate, nonprofit, agency, media). I also work with individual subject-matter experts, physicians, and business leaders who seek to expand their platforms and connect with their audiences via a published book.
