Service Description

My background is product management, working on core and new businesses to build, refine, promote, and grow them. I love collaborating with folks on projects, but I'm comfortable working independently, too. I have experience handling all aspects of marketing, including consumer research and PR as well as promotion development, sales support, and new product development.

I have strong writing skills and can write formal pieces, such as training manuals and product catalogs, and informal pieces, such as newsletters. I am working as an independent travel writer and can write short 300-word articles or more in-depth stories as well. And, though I'm not an editor by training, I have a keen eye for identifying content that does and does not fit with a piece's subject matter or area of focus.

I'm incredibly organized and am quite efficient with my (and my client's) time. I'm able to turn projects around quickly and deliver results in a timely manner for you.
