Experienced editor, writer, and consultant with heart and soul

I am an editorial consultant with a focus on the small-business and education sectors. I offer:

* a keen eye for detail. My love for language and dedication to precise expression make me a thorough editor and a lively writer.

* a steady hand for management. I am a creative problem-solver; I seek the root of an issue and find elegant ways to address it. I am a collaboration-oriented, effective manager of projects and people.

* a big-picture brain for strategy. I am a proven leader with demonstrated ability to creatively envision new programs and engage in systems-thinking. Creating actualized plans from an inspired idea is one of my favorite things.

I edit and copyedit small-business digital and print materials of all types, such as website copy, brochures, press releases, and e-blasts.

Curriculum development
I research, write, and edit K–12 materials for teachers, students, and providers of educational products and service. My deep expertise is in critical thinking, Common Core (ELA), English, language arts, and literature; additional areas of expertise include conservation studies, history/social studies, Next Generation Science Standards, and science.

Voiceover writing
I research and develop original scripts, convert informational copy to script copy, and edit existing scripts for clarity and flow.

I craft original copy for digital and print materials, such as company and staff bios, case studies, and descriptions of products or services offered.

Editorial project management
I plan schedules, tasks, and resources, develop editorial guidelines, and anticipate production needs.

Concept development
I help you clarify your goals, principles, and target audiences for educational initiatives, and then facilitate translating those ideas into concrete high-quality materials
