As a freelance content provider, I offer you the benefit of my life experience an engaged, passionate citizen-artist. I received my first diary at the age of 14 and have been a writer ever since. I have worked as an elementary school teacher, journalist, radio producer and on-air host, and for community television, advertising agencies, newspapers, publishers and non-profit organizations. In my career, I have learned the art of active listening and creative collaboration… and I work diligently, with complete respect for deadlines, to earn the respect of my colleagues and clients.

It may not be practical for your business or organization to employ an in-house writer for newsletters, fund-raising letters, blogs, eBlasts, press releases, ads, brochures, catalogs, web content, reports, case studies, feature stories, bios and profiles. I can help!

I also have six years’ experience in writing successful grant proposals and grant reports submitted to private foundations and government funders. (see writing samples section)

My intention is to assist you with language that is clear, organized, intelligent, deep or light-hearted as appropriate, geared to its audience, and that speaks with the values and in the voice of you, your business, or the group you represent.

For a recent writing sample, browse the brochure for the Santa Rosa Symphony 2015-2016 season, for which I created the written content.
