Need help navigating and/or leveraging social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest? I can help! I prepare audience-relevant tweets and updates that reflect your brand , promote fan engagement, and will encourage people to visit your website. I can also help you set up your social media pages if you are just starting out. Monthly social media support packages are also available, just ask.

Business writing and correspondence, marketing materials, RFP preparation and response, content writing for blogs, brochures, corporate magazines, newsletters or any other print or web-based publication.

Diverse life experiences and interests help inform my writing. I have quite a bit of travel experience (five continents and dozens of countries) and can write about travel from a variety of perspectives including: travel gear, budget travel, trip planning, hostels, couchsurfing, airbnb, vacation rentals, house swaps, tourist sites, and travel destination profiles.

Other interests include vegetarian cooking, camping, community supported agriculture, farmer's markets, US food policy, green living, personal finance, urban planning, cultural landscapes, event planning, entertaining, games and puzzles, social media, reading, crafting, volunteering, and blogging.
