Overview

In a rewarding journalism career that also crosses over into public relations, I have communicated, advocated, managed, mentored, counseled, consulted and exercised excellent judgment under unforgiving deadlines. To the client I can bring a facility for language and clear expression, a belief in the benefits of hard work and a capacity for keeping many balls in the air at once.

Service Description

As a writer, editor and teacher, I have strived to inform, explain and persuade -- in print, in person and online.
As a public relations practitioner, whether I was writing speeches, crafting press kits, dealing with the media or counseling corporate executives, I understood that every detail we chose to disseminate had to be imparted honestly and transparently.
My entire career has embraced the implementation and management of thoughtful, effective communications strategies. My fortes are precision, versatility and maintaining solid, professional working relationships internally and externally. As well, I have been relied upon repeatedly to understand the complex and to relate it to various audiences in clear and compelling terms.
