If I needed to hire a writer, I'd hire me. When I requested reference letters from a couple clients, they asked if I could whip something up for them.
I'm a creative, cognitive thinker with a 19-year career in PR, advertising and marketing. As a 'word nerd' and business woman, I use both sides of my mental muscle to produce prompt, memorable writing. Copy that sparks. Scripts that sing. Content that spurs. Phrases that sell. Stories that pierce.
Though I have a niche in residential and commercial design, I love challenges. Recently I've written website copy for a butchery biowaste broker, ad copy to promote toilet paper ply adhesive and a white paper about medical electronic data transmission (no, not kidding). In other words, I'm not scared by topic, let alone deadline. Bring it on!
Words are the building blocks of my fun, expansive career. I hope this block of text inspires you to contact me. I'm ready to meet your next deadline...
