Service Description

Writing, editing, ghostwriting, blogging; research; transcription.
This creative and intellectually curious communications professional is searching for opportunities to tell stories and effectively communicate desired messages, as part of a team or as a freelance writer. My particular interests are startups and small businesses. My strengths include the ability to quickly put people at easy and build rapport, brainstorming (I never run out of ideas), absorbing and processing complex information and reducing it to simple language. I am also an experienced paralegal who fell in love with courts and the law during my years as a public safety and state/federal courts newspaper reporter.
Every person has at least one great story to tell. Every business or organization has the potential for an endless series of stories about its people, products and services, events, and interactions with the community. My special talent is conveying in print the unique voice or perspective of each interview subject or client. I write and edit web content, media releases, marketing copy, and newsletter and newspaper articles. I have written content for nonprofit organizations, a trade association, financial company, small business, creative services company, health care initiative, emergency services organization, political candidate and more.
