About

Perfecting a document is much the same as solving a puzzle. I take pride in each successful result.

Since earning my B.A. in English Literature from Washington University in St. Louis, MO, I have worked as a writer, editor, proofreader, and researcher.

Over the years I've written and edited prose for many purposes - from how-to articles to blog posts, from academic study guides to pop-culture quizzes, from annual reports to fundraising letters, from policy manuals to company brochures.

Both directly and as a freelancer for public relations firms, I have provided creative content and editorial services to many fine organizations, including InfoSpace, Wells Fargo Advisors, MetLife, the Saint Louis Zoo, OASIS, Lutheran Senior Services, three archdioceses (St. Louis, Kansas City in Kansas, and Omaha), Congregation of the Mission Western Province, BrainyQuote, BookRags, Zoo.com, Henning Communications, Delta Kappa Epsilon, a number of private schools and universities, and more.

What can I do for you or your organization, to share your message with the world?

Work Terms

My terms are negotiable, depending on the scope of work and time frame required. Generally I communicate with clients via email, because written communication helps everyone involved in a project stay on track.

Your time is valuable and your deadlines are important - I promise a speedy turnaround on every assignment.
