Since graduating from the University of Kansas in 2000, I've been enhancing corporate communications as a writer and editor. I honed my skills at Thomson Reuters, the Corporate Executive Board, and Goodwill Industries International, where I developed a knack for relationship building and collaboration.
As a freelance writer and editor since 2009, I help clients take their ideas from brainstorming to publication. I partner with large organizations, small businesses, and independent authors from Silicon Valley to Washington, D.C., and even overseas! Thanks to technology, I can reach my clients wherever they are, whenever they need me.
Throughout my career, I have contributed to and fine-tuned websites, social media, blogs, training and marketing materials, financial reports, white papers and case studies, newsletters, trade publications, and more. I also coach writers, and help organizations develop their own in-house style.
I am well versed in AP and Chicago styles. I am competent in Microsoft Office and Adobe products, including InDesign and Photoshop, and have experience using a wide variety of content management systems.
I live in the Chicago metropolitan area with my husband and four-year-old son. I love to cook, read, and do yoga, and I’m always on the lookout for local coffee shops to fuel my creativity.
