Service Description

I love words. I love the way they trip and fall over each other in a story; the way they conjure images in the mind, like a familiar scent or piece of music. Words are powerful, persuasive.

My clients can expect a dedicated, hard-working writer who seeks to provide high-quality content. My experience as an educator gives me a deep understanding of the written language as well as an exceptional ability to communicate the need for changes and revisions with compassion and sensitivity.

Integrity - both professional and personal - serves as the cornerstone of who I am and what I do. As my client, you can expect professionalism, punctuality, honesty, and excellence.
