About Me

Stories are powerful. Through them, we can help others heal, move people to action, inspire readers, and share life-changing information. I am passionate about storytelling, whether these stories take the form of statistics in news articles, fictional narratives in books, or heartfelt personal features in fundraising letters. I also love partnering with people to achieve their goals. My commitment to excellence and knowledge of AP style allow me to create quality work. Let me help turn your idea into a reality!
