Service Description

In an era of constant change, the key to success lies in creativity.

A 2010 study based on conversations with more than 1,500 CEOs worldwide found that very characteristic more important than any other in navigating through a business environment in which rules are in continual flux.

Creative leaders innovate. They breed new ideas. They challenge convention. They embrace change. They absorb new technology. They find unexpected ways to make things happen.

Creativity is what I do best.

I tap into my creativity time and time again to help my clients achieve new successes. Whatever the challenge, I bring a fresh perspective, an unflagging energy and a passion to get results.

I never miss a deadline, and it's my mission to deliver wow-worthy results -- every time.

My specialties are:

* Internal or external corporate and organizational communication (e.g., newsletters, company magazines, annual reports)
* Marketing pieces (e.g., brochures, image pieces, direct-mail campaigns, B2B and B2C materials)
* Public relations materials (e.g., press releases, media kits, pitch letters, features)
* Copywriting
* Editing
* Proofreading
* Travel writing
* Blogging
* Social media
