My Background & Experience

For print/online publications and websites, my experience includes articles, digital content, people profiles, and brand storytelling. My work has been published more than 100 times in venues that include Parade Magazine, 5280 Magazine, MSN Causes, MSN Rediscover, Breckenridge Magazine, The Bloomsbury Review, Colorado’s Zenith Woman Magazine, The Rocky Mountain News (regular contributor for two years), and Conscious Choice: The Journal of Ecology & Natural Living (regular contributor for five years).

I’ve written about a range of topics, with a focus on travel and lifestyle over the past few years. Recently, I had the pleasure of working on Buick’s successful brand-building campaign called Rediscover — a dynamic MSN travel series geared towards growing Buick’s appeal to a young, up-and-coming audience. I was selected to profile a variety of people from Memphis and Colorado’s Front Range, including artists, chefs, entrepreneurs, civic leaders, and musicians. All provided “insider” perspectives on their cities with a focus on locally celebrated, undiscovered gems. I also wrote about Front Range towns and places. Samples of these articles and more are on the next page.

For nonprofit organizations and businesses, I am a seasoned scribe of meaningful stories. I’ve written grant proposals, case statements, newsletters, brochures, and annual report articles, in addition to corporate profiles and company histories.

Over the years, my work has raised millions of dollars for nonprofit organizations that operate in the following areas: women and children, health, education, animal welfare, arts and culture, affordable housing, and the environment.

I know how to put a compelling twist on difficult subjects, and specialize in writing that informs, engages, promotes, and inspires. I am proficient at conveying the “big picture” behind an organization, business, or program, and also possess the kind of strategic mindset necessary to creating strong presentations.

RESEARCH AND FACT-CHECKING

I am a skilled researcher with an extensive background in finding and analyzing a variety of information for book authors, nonprofits, and businesses.

Fact-checking is woven into just about everything I do. I seldom write anything without checking and double-checking facts and details. I pride myself on accuracy!

When you hire me, you get:

— An accomplished writer who can make any subject compelling.

— An experienced professional.

— A stickler for accuracy who strives to make your life easier by delivering high quality and concise work on time.
