In a 21st century where electronic communication is changing the way we think about language, one could be forgiven for assuming that the written word is becoming superfluous.

But there is still a deep need—even a hunger—among those of us who seek to be understood and to influence others, for clarity of expression and precision of meaning, no matter what the media.

Clients count on me to provide agile, intelligent, effective wordsmithing that takes their ideas and makes them sing. Whether it’s a for profit or not for profit venture, they count on me to help them stand out in the marketplace, to help drive business their way, and to help them achieve their ambitious goals.

I am a creative, energetic communications professional with exceptional skills in writing, editing, social media, marketing, public/media relations, and crisis communication. Portions of that diverse portfolio can be found elsewhere on this website.  I invite you to take a look.

I also have proven myself as an articulate spokesperson, effective media relations coach, superlative events coordinator, and engaged team member who understands today’s communications challenges and is adept at interpreting their complexities for many diverse audiences.

Whether I am writing and editing healthcare related materials for the general public and patients or bringing fresh branding language to the website of an internationally respected law firm, I listen to my clients and develop problem-solving solutions that move them from wishful thinking to action and results.

“The language is perpetually in flux: it is a living stream, shifting, changing, receiving new strength from a thousand tributaries, losing old forms in the backwaters of time…There is simply a better chance of doing well if the writer holds a steady course, enters the stream of English quietly, and does not thrash about.”
—E.B. White, The Elements of Style
