About Me

I write sales copy and marketing content for food and beverage brands and nonprofits. My writing is always focused on storytelling in a way that brings the reader on a journey toward a solution. 

The only thing I love more than watching Disney movies with my toddlers is writing for boss businesses that are doing all the good.
