Why me?

Save time with a writer who gets it

Years of experience generating compelling, thought-provoking content for executives and elected officials means I know how to convey your voice and your message.

Whether you need to take a firm stand in an op-ed or sway an audience with a persuasive speech, I bring authenticity through your voice and your message.

I understand writing for different audiences

The audience for a presentation is different from the audience for an op-ed is different from the audience for an internal communication.

I get that and know how to tailor writing to the appropriate audience so your content gets read and absorbed. My years as a journalist getting articles published nationally and internationally helped me hone my ability to write content that resonates with the appropriate audience.

I help you tell your story with eye-catching presentations

Let’s face it, it’s not just words that tell your story and convey your point. In the era of TED Talks, powerpoint presentations have grown from the dreaded bullet points on slides to a modern storytelling device.

I’ve created presentations that executives have given at national conferences — to acclaim. Let me help you create eye-catching, modern, impactful presentations that showcase the work you’re doing.

A little bit more about me…

I gained years of experience writing for elected officials and executives while doing communications for various government agencies. Having worked in the transportation, water and county government sectors, I am capable of writing in an interesting, friendly way about complicated topics. That can help you convey your message in an approachable, understandable way.

As a reporter and editor, I covered environmental issues and education, as well as whatever else needed to be covered on any given day. That taught me how to get up-to-speed quickly on a new topic, and it’s a skill I’ve made use of time and again. While I tend to focus on the sustainability industry, this skill has served me well writing on a number of topics, from tiny homes to using falcons for pest abatement.
