I’m a professional writer with an English degree, a background in journalism and a passion for authentic marketing.

I believe in the power of storytelling, and I hate when people say no one reads anymore. (No one reads bad writing anymore — there’s way too much good content out there already!)

My goal is to position you and your business in the content spotlight through high-quality, audience-centered copy.

Why I Write

Much like people struggle to write, I struggle to speak. Seriously! For the first half of my life, talking was a physical struggle. I just couldn’t do it 80% of the time. Like you might stare at a blank page, I stared at blank faces for 18 years — before I finally got past my blocks and learned how to genuinely communicate.

In the meantime, however, I discovered the power of writing and its inherent ability to make me think things out. From the day I learned how to string words together, they changed everything for me!

Today, writing is easily the driving force of my life. By putting words to the screen, I come to understand what I feel, how I experience the world and, most importantly, how to move forward. It’s been my safe space, my favorite form of expression and, later, my most valuable tool. Why? I’ll let you in on a little secret, my friends.

Writing can accomplish anything.

Why I Want To Help You Write

I know what it’s like to struggle for the right words. For my crazy brain, however, writing is the solution not the problem. At my core, I want to help you feel that, too.

I don’t just want to create written content for you; I want you to feel like you’re armed with another tool to build the business of your dreams. I want you to see how written content can change the way your business interacts with your audience.

Why? It’s a power you’ve probably never seen before. And I’m letting the cat out of the bag.
