Words that Work. Stories that Matter.
I work with small to mid-size companies with a purpose. They have a mission and a message, but lack the time or talent to get the word out. I deliver the words they need, written from scratch or edited.
With keen sense of natural language use and an eye for grammatical styles, I supply my clients with the phrases, paragraphs, pages, articles and documents they need to confidently get back to the work they care about.
I also partner with marketing, communication and design firms so they can reach more clients in a timely manner. Together we create content that lets their clients succeed.
I collect dictionaries, have a penchant for Oxford commas, and will vehemently defend the passive voice. I formalized my love for words at UC Berkeley studying theoretical linguistics and digging into why and how we communicate – and how Deaf kids naturally develop vocabulary and grammar.
My first job out of college was the lead reporter at a small town newspaper. Soon enough, I fell in love with the power of the human interest story. “If it bleeds it leads” may be true, but those heart-warming stories build community pride and a sense of place.
Now I translate that power of story telling for entrepreneurs and business owners. I bring an innate sense of language, grammar, and syntax. Whether you are launching your website or sending out yet another document, I’m that second pair of eyes you need. Because not everyone likes staring at blank pages and a mess full of words… but I do.
